Srinagar, May 31:

A bomb threat call targeting Vistara flight UK611, arriving from New Delhi, prompted immediate action by airport authorities at Srinagar International Airport. The incident unfolded when Air Traffic Control (ATC) Srinagar received a threatening call, sparking a swift and coordinated response from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

A top official told Srinagar based news agency Kashmir Dot Com that following established safety protocols, the CISF quickly evacuated the aircraft and conducted a thorough search of the plane and its surroundings. Passengers and crew members were escorted to a secure area while the investigation was underway. Bomb disposal squads and sniffer dogs were deployed to meticulously inspect the aircraft for any suspicious items. After an exhaustive search, no explosives were found on board.

Passengers at the airport praised the efficiency and professionalism of the CISF and airport authorities in managing the situation without causing undue panic.
