This development comes on a day when Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman scheduled to visit the city. Naidu will be in Chennai to inaugurate the Gana Saraswathi Smt. DK Pattammal centenary celebrations tomorrow.

An unidentified person called up the airline, which operates flights between Chennai and Hyderabad, and threatened to blow up flights, reported PTI.

Last year in June, a bomb threat was sent to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headquarters in Chennai. The threat was sent in a white coloured parcel which contained gunpowder along with a letter.
