AHMEDABAD: The Ahmedabad airport on Monday received a bomb threat via an email which turned out to be a hoax after security personnel conducted a thorough search of the premises and did not find anything suspicious, an official said.

Nothing suspicious was found after the premises of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport was searched for more than two hours by local police and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, inspector of airport police station SG Khambhala said.

The search operation involving teams from local police, the CISF and a bomb disposal squad (BDS) went on for two-and-a-half hours, he said.

The incident comes more than a month after a similar threat mail was received by Ahmedabad airport authorities on May 12, but nothing suspicious was found then also.
