An unidentified person made a threat call to the Mumbai police’s control room and claimed that the lives of 19 people at the international airport in Mumbai were in peril, an officer said today.
After receiving the decision on Tuesday afternoon, the police’s Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad, dog squad and a fast response team rushed to the airport and searched the premises.
They also alerted the Central Industrial personnel (CISF), but nothing suspicious was found, the official told news organization Press Trust of India.
The caller, who is yet to be traced, claimed that the “lives of 19 people of a department” at the Sahar international airport in Mumbai were in peril, the official told Press Trust of India, without divulging from now on details.
The Sahar police subsequently registered a case against the unidentified person under Indian legal code Sections 505(1)(b) (intent to cause, or which is probably going to cause, fear or alarm to the public) and 506(2) (punishment for criminal intimidation), and efforts were on to arrest the caller, he said.
