Original Story —

Passengers were reportedly deboarded from a Mumbai-bound Jet Airways flight at Ahmedabad airport on Wednesday after authorities received a call, warning them of a bomb being on the plane. 

The flight was parked in an isolated area and a bomb squad was called in to conduct a search on the plane, Asian News International reported.

Jet Airways had to ground some of its flights last month after receiving bomb threats, which later turned out to be hoaxes.

The airlines received bomb threats for six flights — Mumbai-Dehradun flight and five others from New Delhi, including Delhi-Chennai, Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Dehradun, Delhi-Gorakhpur flights.

This is a developing story.
