Anthrax scare in Indian
consulate in NY

Dharam Shourie in New York

The anthrax jitter gripped the Indian consulate in New York when its mailroom received an envelope containing white powder prompting the authorities to seal the room.

The powder covered the face and hands of the mailroom assistant when she opened the envelope. She was rushed for a medical check-up.

The consulate was sealed on Monday evening after local authorities took samples of the powder for chemical examination whose results are expected to be available in 72 hours.
