Panic ensued among authorities after a tissue paper with the word “bomb” written on it was discovered in the toilet of an Air India flight at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport on Wednesday evening.

The incident, which occurred at approximately 7:30 pm, prompted a swift response from security personnel. According to Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI Airport) Usha Ranganani, a thorough inspection was carried out in accordance with standard security protocols. Fortunately, the inspection yielded no evidence of any actual threat.

This unsettling discovery comes amidst a series of recent false alarms in the region. Just days prior, on Sunday, authorities received an email threat targeting both the Indira Gandhi International Airport and several hospitals in Delhi. Following an extensive investigation, police determined the threat to be baseless, dismissing it as a mere rumor.

Similarly, on May 1, over 150 schools across Delhi-NCR received fake threatening emails, which also turned out to be false alarm.
