Gurgaon, Sep 22 (IANS) A 44-year-old farmer was arrested here for making a hoax bomb call threatening an explosion at the police lines complex Aug 9, police said Sunday.

Deewan Singh of village Ghoshgarh was arrested Saturday. He was presented in court that sent him to one-day police remand.

"Deewan wanted one Sandeep from Bhohrakalan village to be arrested for eloping with his married daughter a few months ago," investigation officer Shri Bhagwan told IANS.
