Bomb threat in Delhi-bound flight; investigation underway

Early on Friday morning, an investigation was launched into a possible bomb threat in a Delhi-bound flight from Moscow. The flight landed in the national capital without incident. The passengers and crew members on board the flight were deboarded and the flight was checked, according to the Delhi Police.

“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,” Delhi Police said, as quoted by ANI.

This comes days after the Indian Air Force (IAF) had to scramble 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.
