Istanbul’s Avcılar metrobus station closed due to false bomb notice
ISTANBULThe metrobus station in Istanbul’s Avcılar district was closed due to a false bomb notice on April 17.
Police teams were dispatched to the station upon identification of a suspicious package and the station was closed by the police.
The line remained active but metrobuses did not stop at the station, to which a team of specialists was called.
After the examinations, it was understood that the suspicious object was a flask.
The station was reopened after half an hour.
This is the second time a metrobus station in Avcılar has been closed due to a bomb threat.
A suspicious plastic bottle surrounded with ball bearings triggered panic at a metrobus station in the same district early on April 13.
Following a call, police teams were dispatched to the University Campus metrobus station in Avcılar. Police conducted inspections in the station but did not find any threat in the area.
