On Wednesday, bomb threats were reported for two Kathmandu-bound flights from Delhi -- Jet Airways 9W260 and Air India 215 -- through a VoIP threat call, according to ANI news agency. 

Both flights were delayed as bomb disposal squads carried out checks on the planes following the security alert.

Jet Airways said in a statement on Twitter that 122 passengers on its Delhi-Kathmandu flight were taken to a waiting area after a delay in departure.

Air India also made a similar announcement, stating that passengers had  been deboarded and that security personnel were screening baggage.

According to ANI, the  Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Airports received a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) threat call.

On Monday, a Jet Airways flight from Delhi to Kathmandu was delayed due to a bomb scare.
