Airport authorities on Friday said authorities at the Delhi airport are frisking a Vistara flight that was to leave for Pune following a bomb threat.

The airport call center received a call at around 7:30 am on Friday and the caller said that ‘three bombs have been placed on flight number UK971 parked at gate number 42 and they will explode in an hour’. Official sources said the call was disconnected immediately.

All passengers and crew of the flight have been deboarded and anti-sabotage checks are underway in a separate room at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport, he said.

However, the police said that the search operation is over and nothing suspicious has been found. The flight was to leave at 8:30 am.

“A case is being registered and further investigation is on,” he added.
