A SpiceJet flight preparing for takeoff at Ahmedabad was delayed on Sunday when a man who was not allowed to board phoned in a bomb hoax from the airport.
29 year-old Ravindra Khanna was arrested by Delhi police after he admitted that he made a call from an airport phone saying he heard there might be a bomb aboard the flight.
The SpiceJet plane was taken in to isolation after the call and the passengers offloaded so the aircraft could be inspected. Nothing was found.
The plane was reboarded and allowed to take off after the delay.
