Bomb threat at Delhi-Bengaluru airports declared hoax


Bengaluru, Sept 5: A bomb threat at the Delhi and Bengaluru airports received this morning put security forces into a tizzy. The threat was however declared a hoax after massive search operations were conducted by the CISF at both the airports.

A call threatening to blow up six international flights at both Delhi and Bengaluru was received this morning. Security was immediately stepped up and the CISF personnel conducted a thorough search. However the threat was declared hoax after the search operations were conducted. Normal operations at both the airports have now resumed after the threat was declared a hoax.


Investigations have now been launched to find out who exactly issued the threat. Airports have been on high alert for the past year in the wake of several such threats.
