The Ahmedabad airport, which had received the call alleging a bomb threat, alerted the police and they initiated action against the man who made the hoax call instantly.

According to the investigating team, it was a hoax call. The flight was supposed to depart at 5:20 pm. One of the passengers was left to board and the airport authorities called him to remind him about the flight departure.
