Ahmedabad: Hours after Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport received bomb threats via email, a threat email to blow up the Ahmedabad airport was received on Sunday. The email was sent to the Ahmedabad airport on Sunday afternoon warning to blow up the airport with a bomb.
The bomb threats in Delhi were reported from several locations, including Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal-3, Burari Hospital, Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital, Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, Bara Hindu Rao Hospital, Janakpuri Super Speciality Hospital, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, Dabri's Dada Dev Hospital, and Aruna Asaf Ali Government Hospital in Civil Lines, a senior official from the Delhi Fire Services said.
"An email was received at Burari Hospital regarding a bomb threat. Local police, bomb squad, dog squad were rushed to the spot. Teams are checking the hospital. Nothing suspicious has been found yet," Deputy Commissioner of Police (north) M K Meena said.
The bomb squad and police teams reached the spot to check the hospitals. Nothing suspicious has been found so far. At Delhi Airport, standard operating procedure was followed after the threat mail was received.
The hoax bomb threat e-mail to some of the Delhi hospitals accessed by Times Now reads: "I have placed explosive devices inside of your building. They will explode in the following hours. This isn't a threat, you have a few hours to disarm the bomb or else the blood of innocent people inside of the building will be on your hands. The group called, "Court", is behind this massacre."
Meanwhile, the bomb threat emails sent to at least 36 schools in Ahmedabad on May 7 have been traced back to Pakistan, police said. “The emails were sent from ‘mail.ru’ domain, in which a man impersonating himself as Tauheed Liaquat sent them to all the schools with the aim of spreading fear among voters and Indian citizens,” the Ahmedabad crime branch said in a statement.
Officials started an investigation into the matter and reassured the public that there is no need to panic. "No need to panic or exaggerate it...5-6 schools have been threatened through mail about bomb blast...we are checking. No need to give too much hype...people should not panic as tomorrow is poll day," DCP Control Ahmedabad City said.
