Update, 3:08 pm: The Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) had reportedly received the threat call for two flights Thursday from the caller who had made a false bomb-scare call for the Delhi-Bangkok Air India flight Wednesday. 

Original Story:

Two flights, one of Nepal Airlines and another of Air India, were reportedly parked in an isolated area at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport to conduct searches following a bomb threat Thursday. Four Members of Parliament were aboard the Bhubaneswar-bound Air India flight. 

Meanwhile, all the passengers from the Kathmandu-bound flight were safely evacuated. Security officials searched the baggage on board the flights.  

This incident followed another false bomb scare when the Air India flight 332 from Delhi to Bangkok was searched at a Bangkok airport Thursday, March 16. All the 231 passengers and crew members of the Air India flight were evacuated safely. 

"After related agencies who searched both the aircraft, luggage and passengers found no suspicious objects. Suvarnabhumi Airport called off the emergency operation," Channel NewsAsia quoted Airports of Thailand as saying in a statement Thursday.

Several bomb threats have disrupted the flights to Kathmandu from India in the past. Jet Airways flight 9W 260 was grounded Jan. 25 after the Delhi Police received a call warning about a "gift box" kept "on seat 18" of the Kathmandu-bound flight.

Two Kathmandu-bound Air India flights were delayed Jan. 27 following bomb threats.
