Police sources confirmed to Delhi Magazine Team that the airport authorities received a threatening email at 6:00 pm, prompting a swift response from security personnel. In response to the threats, Delhi’s hospitals have bolstered security measures, with additional police units deployed to the airport as a precautionary measure. Despite the warnings, no suspicious items have been discovered at any of the targeted locations.

North Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police MK Meena disclosed that a comprehensive investigation was launched following a threat call originating from Burari Hospital at 3:00 pm. “Local police, bomb disposal squads, and K9 units have been dispatched to assess the situation. As of now, no alarming discoveries have been made,” stated Meena.

In a statement, a Burari Hospital official remarked, “We received a concerning email regarding a potential bomb threat around 3:00 pm. Following a thorough investigation, no credible threat was detected. This is the first time we have encountered such an email.” Similarly, Sanjay Gandhi Hospital acknowledged receiving a similar threatening email during the same timeframe.

A spokesperson from the Delhi Fire Service (DFS) elaborated, “Response teams have been dispatched to all the reported locations. Our teams remain on-site, conducting thorough searches.” This recent wave of threats follows a similar incident on May 1, where over 150 schools across Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) received bomb threats via email, causing widespread concern amongst students and parents. Investigations into the matter concluded with no incriminating evidence found.

With Delhi scheduled to conduct voting for all seven Lok Sabha seats on May 25, authorities are maintaining heightened vigilance to ensure public safety and uphold law and order during this critical period. Security personnel remain on high alert amid concerns that anti-social elements or potential terrorists may attempt to disrupt the electoral process.

Authorities continue to urge the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or information to law enforcement agencies promptly.
