An unidentified person on Wednesday called up Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and threatened to blow up the hospital in south Mumbai, the police official said.

The caller also issued a threat against Mukesh Ambani and his family, he said. The threat call from an unknown number was received at 12:57 pm.

"A call was received on the landline number of Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital at 12.57 pm today from an unknown number in which the caller threatened to blow up the Hospital and issued threats in name of some members of the Ambani family," Mumbai Police said in an official statement.
