A 21-year-old was lately tracked down by the police, following a bomb hoax at Vijay’s Chennai residence. As per several media reports, the young man was arrested for making an anonymous call to the police control room, to issue a bomb threat at Thalalapathy Vijay’s house. Soon after the call, a thorough search at his residence was conducted by the police, only to find that it was a hoax call.
