Mangaluru: A Mangaluru-Mumbai flight was delayed by six hours after a woman passenger raised an alarm about a suspicious text message received on the mobile phone of a fellow traveler at Mangaluru International airport.


The man was reportedly texting his friend, a girl, who was also scheduled to catch a flight to Bengaluru from the same airport the same day.

The girl allegedly sent a message to the man that read, “You are the bomber.”

All the passengers were asked to alight from the aircraft and their luggage was thoroughly checked for any sabotage before the IndiGo flight was allowed to leave for Mumbai on Sunday evening.

Following this, IndiGo airlines have filed a complaint against the duo for causing inconvenience to passengers and crew.


A case has been registered and the duo is currently being interrogated.
