A 13-year-old boy sent an email to Delhi airport claiming a bomb was planted on a Dubai-bound flight on June 18

Such threats are taken very seriously by authorities until they are proven fake. The teen admittedly did so “just for fun” after being influenced by the news of another teenager who made a hoax bomb threat call a few days ago, Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI Airport) Usha Rangnani said
