    Delhi Airport Bomb Scare | 13-Year-Old Boy Apprehended, Sent Email ‘Just For Fun’

    Date:

    New Delhi, Jun 23: A 13-year-old boy was apprehended for allegedly sending an email to the Delhi Airport falsely claiming that a bomb had been planted in the Dubai-bound flight, police said on Sunday. The boy had sent the mail “just for fun” after being influenced by the news of another teenager who made a hoax bomb threat call a few days ago, Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI Airport) Usha Rangnani said.
    The incident occurred on Monday when a complaint was registered regarding a bomb threat on a Dubai-bound flight on June 18, DCP said.
    Based on the complaint, an FIR was lodged, and an investigation was launched. All the guidelines, protocols and SOPs were followed to ensure the safety and security of the passengers, DCP said.
    “Airport was put on high alert, and an emergency was declared,” she said.
    However, during the investigation, the email was found to be a hoax, she said.
    “During the investigation, it was revealed that the e-mail ID was deleted just after sending the email. The email was traced at Pithoragarh in Uttranchal,” Rangnani said.
    A team was sent, and the boy was apprehended for sending the hoax email, she said.
    “The boy told the police team that his parents had given a mobile to him for study purposes through which he sent the email and later deleted his ID. He did not share any information with his parents as he was scared. He was apprehended and handed over to his parents,” she added. (Agencies)
