Several airports across India faced bomb threats on Tuesday, leading to heightened security measures and flight delays.

In the morning, a Dubai-bound flight scheduled to depart from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) received a bomb threat via email. Preliminary investigations revealed that the same threat was emailed to 40 airports across India at approximately 12:40 PM.
