Security up at Kolkata airport after email

Kolkata: Security was enhanced at the city airport from Tuesday afternoon after the airport director‘s office reportedly received an email from an unknown account with a short message: “Airport is highjake”.

Following the receipt of the mail, a high-level meeting was held and security was instantly beefed up. However, studying the nature of the mail with the word “hijack” misspelt as “highjake”, the officials categorised the threat mail as a non-specific threat and lodged a complaint with the local police station to probe into the issue.

“The airport director‘s office received the mail around 11am on November 13 on the official Airports Authority of India email id of the director. The nature of the words suggests it may be a prank. However, the officials decided to beef up the security,” said a senior official at the airport.
