Scare on Delhi-bound flight



New Delhi: A telephone call claiming that terrorists were onboard a flight about to land at the airport here triggered panic but it was found to be hoax with the arrest of a Delhiite.

The Lucknow-Delhi Indigo flight (6E-609) was about to land around 4 pm when the airline call centre received a phone call claiming that terrorists were onboard the plane with explosives.

When the plane landed, it was taken to an isolation bay where a thorough check was conducted.

Meanwhile, the police tracked the caller to the national capital and arrested the person identified as Raj Bajaj.
