Police said there are still more inquiries being made.

This is not the first time that something similar has happened.

On September 30, a dispute between two passengers on board the aircraft at the Indira Gandhi International Airport resulted in a fake bomb alert that caused a trip to Malaysia to be delayed. Around 1 pm, security agencies were informed about the bomb call from Malaysia Airlines flight MH173, the officials said. Following that, they extensively checked the flight. After a two-hour and forty-minute delay, the plane finally took off for Kuala Lumpur, and four passengers who were reportedly implicated in the incident were turned over to the local authorities.

A inebriated man had threatened to blow up a private plane bound for Dubai the day before in an effort to prevent his family from leaving India. The cops ultimately detained the man.

The Chennai resident threatened to prevent two of his family members from boarding a trip to Dubai when he dialled the local police control centre. According to airport and police sources, the threat prompted the security services to thoroughly check the Indigo flight, which was initially scheduled to take off at 7.20 am on August 27.
