Two flights grounded after bomb hoax in Delhi

Around 350 fliers of two planes to Kathmandu and Bhubhaneswar had a harrowing time here on Thursday following a bomb threat call at the Indira Gandhi International airport.

The planes of Royal Nepal Airlines headed to Kathmandu and Air India to Bhubhaneswar were grounded just minutes before take off. Passengers were offloaded and the planes taken to the isolation bay for checks by security personnel for explosives.

The fliers of both the flights had to undergo a second round of checking. The pieces of baggage were also checked again by the Bomb Threat Assessment Committee (BTAC) at the IGIA monitoring the situation. The flights left for their destinations later in the evening.
