The call was made to SpiceJet's Gurugram-based call centre and the caller had identified himself as Kishore.

During the call, he stated that he had overheard two men talking about a bomb in SpiceJet flight number SG-8496 flying from Darbhanga to Delhi on January 24.

Following the call, Delhi airport was put on high alert as the flight had already departed from Darbhanga".

Following the thorough search of the aircraft, the bomb threat call was found to be a hoax.

Police registered a case against Kishore under Indian Penal Code sections 506 (criminal intimidation) and 507 (criminal intimidation by anonymous communication).
