Man Calls in Bomb Threat to Avoid Missing Flight

Posted on September 2, 2009

An Indian man, clearly aggravated over the fact that traffic might cost him his flight on IndiGo airlines, decided that the best course of action was causing a panic and calling in a bomb threat to Delhi airport.

The nameless 35-year old businessman, who was unable to secure another flight, was identified when his cell phone number was traced back to him via the command center at the airport. Additional help came from the cab driver, who overheard the gentleman making the phone call.

Once faced with the incontrovertible evidence for his guilt, the man confessed, but not before costing the city $4,000 and delaying the flight for several hours while all the passengers and their luggage were thoroughly searched.

Suffice it to say, his plan kind of worked, though not in the way he had hoped. The man is presumably in jail, though it is unknown what charges will filed be against him.
