An IndiGo flight that was set to take off from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport received a bomb threat email late Saturday night, following which security was beefed up at the airport.
Security agencies were put on high alert, however, the bomb threat email turned out to be a hoax as nothing was found on the flight, confirmed Mumbai police.
“On Saturday night, an email was received at the Mumbai airport, in which it was written that a bomb had been planted in Indigo flight number 6E 6045,” an official said. This flight was to take off from Mumbai and land at Ahmedabad.
It was checked after the email, but nothing was found on the flight. However, the flight was delayed. Security agencies are investigating the matter.
