A near save day
Delhi Police said that a call about a bomb in the flight coming from Moscow to Delhi was received last night.
Investigations were under process into a bomb threat against a Delhi-bound flight that landed in the national capital on early Friday morning on 14th October, 2022, police said.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) received an e-mail warning of a bomb on the Moscow-Delhi flight, all passengers and crew members on board the flight were immediately deboarded and the flight was checked.
The plane landed on runway 29 and was checked and no bomb was found.
“A call about a bomb in the flight coming from Moscow to Delhi was received last night. The flight landed in Delhi at around 3.20 am. All passengers and crew members were deboarded. Flight is being checked and investigation is underway,” said Delhi Police.
A senior police official said that nothing has been found so far and the aircraft has been isolated, according to the reports.
This comes days after the Indian Air Force (IAF) had to disburse Su-30MKI fighter jets to shadow an Iranian Mahan Air flight following inputs from Lahore’s Air Traffic Control (ATC) about a possible bomb threat, which turned out to be false. The Mahan Air flight W581 was on its way from Tehran to Guangzhou in China when an alert was triggered.
As of now the flight is being checked thoroughly, stay tuned for further updates.
