NEW DELHI: In a bizarre incident, an IndiGo flight from Mumbai to Lucknow via Delhi was grounded on Saturday after a bomb threat call. As per the report, the aircraft was taken to a separate bay for a secondary ladder point check after a Bomb Threat Assessment Committee or BTAC found the threat.
Reports inform that a passenger travelling with another private carrier told the IndiGo staff at Mumbai airport that there could be a bomb on Mumbai-Delhi flight 6E 3612. IndiGo reported the matter to the authorities concerned and followed the normal security protocol,” an IndiGo spokesperson said.
The flight was scheduled to depart at 6.05 am. It was immediately not clear as to how many passengers were on board. A woman passenger travelling to Delhi on Go Air flight G8 329 approached an IndiGo check-in counter at T1 and informed that there was a bomb in IndiGo’s flight 6E 3612 (operating on Mumbai – Delhi/Lucknow route),” an airport source said.
