Enhanced Security at Goa Airport After Bomb Threat Email

Enhanced Security at Goa Airport After Bomb Threat Email

According to a senior official, an email regarding a potential bomb threat at the Dabolim airport in South Goa prompted officials to heighten security measures.

Goa Airport director SVT Dhanamjaya Rao confirmed that his office received the threatening email in the morning, leading to increased vigilance at the airport. Despite the enhanced security measures, flight operations have not been disrupted.

The Goa police received an official report from Goa airport officials, and a police officer confirmed that the bomb disposal squad was conducting a search in the area.

“We are thoroughly investigating every possibility and strictly adhering to the established protocol,” the officer stated.

The airport director mentioned that efforts were being made to determine the source of the email, which was also sent to other airports in the country.

Officials at airports in Jaipur and Kanpur were also alerted to a bomb threat via email, leading to an increase in security measures and a comprehensive search operation. Law enforcement believes the email may be a hoax and is currently working to identify the sender. This incident occurred just two days after several airports received similar threatening emails, which were ultimately determined to be false alarms.

Dabolim airport in Goa and Jaipur International Airport in Rajasthan both received a threatening email on their official email accounts. Authorities at both airports, along with the police and bomb squad, conducted searches after filing complaints.

“We have implemented additional security measures at the airports, but flight operations are running as usual,” stated SVT Dhanamjaya Rao, the director of Dabolim airport.

The Jaipur International Airport director also confirmed receiving the same email this morning. Fortunately, no suspicious items were found during the search operation.

Officials are working closely with authorities in other states to locate the person responsible for sending the threatening emails. The technical cell of the city police is actively investigating the matter. Kanpur Airport in Uttar Pradesh has also increased security measures in response to the threat.

Following similar threats received by multiple airports, including Kolkata and Jaipur, on April 26, various agencies conducted extensive searches. The Mumbai Police managed to arrest one individual in connection with the case.
