Bihar: 6-year-old boy made hoax call to airport

Patna:  It was a six-year-old child who had made the hoax call to the Patna airport saying a bomb had been planted on the airport premises on September 7.
Patna DSP (Sachivalaya) Rajesh Singh Prabhakar told this reporter police investigations tracked the call to Belaganj in Gaya district. “Soon after watching a TV serial on crime, the Class I student saw an aircraft in the sky from his window. He asked his mother where would it land and she replied, “at Patna”.
