An anonymous letter threatening to blow up the campus of software major Wipro here with 19 bombs sparked a security scare, sending police into a tizzy.

"Police and bomb squad have carried out their search at Wipro campus and have found no suspicious object in the vicinity," a police officer told agency.

A letter claiming to blow up Wipro's corporate and training block at 11 AM on Friday and 1 PM on Saturday with 19 bombs was delivered to Sarjapur police station.

The letter had no mention about the sender, police said.

Wipro said in a statement that "as a matter of routine, a security check was undertaken at Wipro's Sarjapur campus. Our operations continue to be business as usual."
