The Ranchi airport has been put on high alert following a bomb threat by an anonymous caller, a top official said.
It was, however, later found to be a hoax call, Birsa Munda Airport Director K L Agarwal said.
“The airport has been put on high alert. We conducted a thorough security check adhering to the standard operating protocol… This was declared a hoax call,” Agarwal told PTI. “We are planning to take legal action against the hoax caller,” he added.
Further investigation is underway, officials said.
