Petrol-filled bottle hurled towards runway at Mumbai airport

Security personnel at the Mumbai airport went into a tizzy after a petrol-filled bottle was hurled towards the runway side by some miscreants, official sources said on Thursday.

They said the incident took place around 9 pm on Wednesday.

A security official of the CentralIndustrial Security Force (CISF) deployed to secure the periphery of the airport noticed that some object landed on the "air side" field from over the boundary wall of the airport that runs along the Gaondevi slum.

The CISF official immediately alerted the security control room of the Chhatrapati ShivajiInternational airport following which a bomb detection and disposal team was rushed to check the spot.

A petrol-filled bottle was recovered by the bomb detection team and it was later disposed of, the sources said.

Operations on the tarmac and the flights were unaffected, they said.
