Bomb threat to airport turns hoax

Trichy: Security was beefed up at the Trichy International Airport after one of the staff there received a bomb threat call here on Monday. According to police, the terminal manager had received the call at around 8am on Monday. The caller – a woman, had told that a bomb would explode at the airport. Subsequently, the official informed the airport director S Dharmaraj who in turn alerted the central industrial security force (CISF).

The CISF personnel conducted a thorough check along with the bomb squad and a sniffer dog in the terminal. However, the threat turned out to be a hoax, airport sources said.

Based on a complaint by the airport authority, Airport police registered a case and conducted an inquiry. There were no disturbances for the regular flight operations at the airport due to the threat, Dharmaraj told TOI.
