Bomb Threat Hoax Targets Dubai-Bound Flight from Delhi
Bomb Threat Hoax Targets Dubai-Bound Flight from Delhi

NEW DELHI: A bomb threat email sent to a Dubai-bound flight from Delhi's Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport on Monday caused a temporary scare, but authorities found nothing suspicious during their investigation.

According to a senior police officer, the threat email was received at 9:35 am in the DIAL office at IGI Airport. The plane was thoroughly checked, and no bomb was found.

This incident is part of a troubling trend in Delhi, where numerous bomb threats have been reported over the past few months, targeting schools, museums, and health institutes. Despite these threats, no actual bombs have been discovered.

On June 12, bomb threat emails were sent to two museums—the National Museum and the Rail Museum—as well as two mental health institutes: the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) and the Vidyasagar Institute of Mental Health, Neuro and Allied Sciences (VIMHANS). The National Museum on Kartavya Path, the Rail Museum in Chanakyapuri, the Gandhi Museum in Daryaganj, and several other locations also received similar threatening emails.

Officials stated that the bomb detection team, bomb disposal squad, fire officials, and local police conducted thorough searches at all these locations but found nothing suspicious.

In a similar incident, Chacha Nehru Hospital in Delhi received a bomb threat on April 30. On May 1, over 150 schools were threatened via emails from a Russia-based mailing service. On May 12, bomb threats were sent to twenty hospitals, IGI Airport, and the Northern Railways' Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) office in Delhi through emails from a Cyprus-based mailing service.

Authorities continue to investigate these threats and take necessary precautions to ensure public safety.
