An FIR has been registered against an unidentified person in connection with a threat call made to Taj Hotel here, police said on Sunday.


The caller, claiming himself to be a member of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba terror outfit, had said he was calling from Karachi and threatened to blow up the hotel in Colaba and Taj Land's End hotel in Bandra, after which security at both the places was beefed up on Tuesday.


The FIR was registered on Friday under sections 506 (criminal intimidation) and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of the Indian Penal Code, a Colaba police station official said.


The Taj hotel was one of the establishments targetted by Pakistani terrorists during the 26/11 terror attack on Mumbai.


Police had said that separate threat calls were made on late Monday night.


The two hotels, run by the Tata group-promoted Indian Hotel Company Limited (IHCL) are closed for commercial business at present due to the COVID-19 pandemic and serve only select patrons.
