BENGALURU: An SMS on a possible bomb threat to the airport by a teacher was sent on Thursday afternoon to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) helpline number, resulting in heightened security at the airport.
According to police sources, the message read, “Teacher s rent man for bombing in airport” (sic). It appeared to be a typo error intending to state that a teacher had sent a person for bombing an airport.
“There has not been a mention of any specific airport nor any other information. There was no disruption in any operations in the airport,” a police officer said.
A spokesperson from airport operator Bangalore International Airport Limited said he will look into the issue.
