This incident follows a recent pattern of threats, as approximately 150 schools in Delhi received similar bomb threat emails last week. The authorities are taking all necessary precautions to protect the students and staff of the schools and to prevent any potential harm. The investigation is ongoing, and efforts are being made to trace the source of the email and to decode the message. The police are treating the situation with utmost seriousness to maintain public safety and order.
