Story : Businessmen loss Wallet
A 32-year old businessman named Shreyansh Chamaria was travelling with SpiceJet from Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport to Bengaluru Kempegowda International Airport. He was a resident of Thanisandra in Karnataka. The flight landed at 09:20 PM. After landing at Bengaluru Airport Terminal 1, the passenger realized that he has lost his wallet in the aircraft.
At 10:15 PM, he called the SpiceJet call centre and told them his problem that his wallet is missing and that it is in the aircraft. The response received by Chamaria was not satisfactory. Hence, he became frustrated. He said the one word, which no one should use in case of Aviation services – ‘Bomb’.
Bomb Threat to SpiceJet
After receiving an unsatisfactory response, Chamaria asked the call centre whether their response would have been the same, if the purse had a bomb. As soon as the call centre received this prompt, they were alerted. The staffer asked the passenger to tell more about the bomb. The call centre representative asked him the bomb location.
Exaggarrating the situation, the passenger said – ”Nhi bataunga, jab phatna hoga phat jayega”. In English, this translates to “I will not tell you anything. The bomb will blast when it has to”. This was enough for call centre staff to alert the security agencies.
As soon as the call centre received this threat, airport security agencies were put on high alert. The passenger named Shreyansh Chamaria was arrested in the airport premises itself. The flight was thoroughly inspected and they found nothing. The threat was later declared hoax. The passenger’s wallet was found at 11:00 PM.
The arrested passenger was later released on bail. In his statement, he said that he never wanted to give a genuine bomb threat. He soared with his anger and frustration because the delayed response of call centre staff members. His wallet had so many personal items like credit cards, debit cards and hence, he was concerned.
SpiceJet and Bomb Threats
In Indian Aviation, every month, there is one such incident where an aircraft is searched in a detailed way because of a bomb threat. Sometimes, this threats are funny. Yeah, really.
For example, in January of this year, SpiceJet flight originating from Pune received a bomb threat. After investigation, it was found that the caller made the threat so that his friends, who were in Pune could spend more time with their girlfriends.
Isnt it funny? However, the caller was later arrested for this stupidly funny act. The aircraft was taken to isolation bay at Pune Airport and the flight was delayed by more than five hours.
At an airport, words like Bomb are taken really very seriously. Even if you are joking, they will take you seriously. You can even get arrested. So, dont show your stupidity at Airports. Travel like a wise person.
