According to officials, the call is said to be made from Pakistan at around 12.30 am. It threatened to blow up the hotel.

In 2008, the Mumbai hotel had become victim to 26/11 terror attack.

In one of the deadliest terror attacks in India's history, 166 people were killed and over 300 injured when 10 heavily-armed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Pakistan created mayhem in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.
