 The authorities refused to let the plane land in New Delhi which was its original rest stop before it was to reach China’s Guangzhou.

A China-bound Iranian plane, Mahan Air, caused quite the ruckus on Monday after The Indian Air Force received intelligence that a bomb was onboard the plane. The authorities refused to let the plane land in New Delhi which was its original rest stop before it was to reach China’s Guangzhou.

Almost immediately after the threat, which was received at 9:25 AM on Monday, all teams were instructed to be on standby and IAF Su-30MKI fighter jets from Punjab and Jodhpur were dispatched to intercept the plane. The IAF fighter jets were flying at a safe distance from the aircraft in order to monitor the plane.

An Official statement by the IAF detailed how the threat was handled stating, “All actions were taken by IAF as per laid down procedure, jointly with the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) & Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS). The aircraft was under close radar surveillance by the Air Force throughout the Indian airspace.”

The plane was given the option to land in Jodhpur, and then in Chandigarh. The pilot, however, adamantly denied both of those options and the aircraft kept moving in circles mid-air west of New Delhi.

The IAF was then contacted by Iranian Officials who asked the authorities to disregard the faux-threat.  “After a while, intimation was received from Tehran to disregard the bomb scare, following which, the aircraft continued on its journey towards its final destination”, the IAF statement detailed.

 

The entire ordeal was diligently handled by the authorities in less than an hour from 9:25 to 10:05

 

 

The entire ordeal was diligently handled by the authorities in less than an hour with Deputy Chief Fire Officer Sanjay Tomar stating, “At around 9.25 am we were informed of a bomb scare after which we put our teams in a stand-by position but the flight did not land. We were given an all-clear message at 10.05 am by security.”
