NEW DELHI: Security officials were sent into a tizzy after a phone call claimed the presence of a potential explosive in the high-security premises of IGI Airport here today.

The police unit at IGI received a call around 2.20 PM from customs department officials, who informed them that they had received a call about a bomb at the cargo area inside IGI Airport, following which a bomb disposal squad was rushed but nothing suspicious was found, said a senior police officer.

The object suspected to be carrying explosive material was a particular parcel, which was checked thoroughly but no explosive substance was found, the officer said.

The entire operation was executed by several security agencies, he added.
