AIRPORT GETS 4 BOMB THREATS IN 24 HOURS; 3 OF THEM FAKE
MUMBAI: The city’s air port received four bomb threats in a 24-hour period from Friday to Saturday. While the first three calls were found to be hoaxes by Sanjeev Mishra, a mentally unstable person, the veracity of the fourth, made at 5.30pm on Saturday by an unknown caller, was yet to be determined at the time of going to press.
Officials from the airport police station detained Mishra briefly but let him off after his family produced a medical certificate from a Kolkata hospital declaring him mentally unstable, an official said.
Mishra’s first call, made at 6pm on Friday, warned of a car bomb near domestic terminal 1B. He called the control room again at 3:20am on Saturday, this time warning of a bomb in a fleet taxi parked at the airport.
