An anonymous sender made a bomb threat against India’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) on Thursday, demanding $1 million in Bitcoin (BTC) within 48 hours.
When the threatened email came from [email protected], it was sent to the feedback box of mumbai international airport limited (mial) at around 11:06 a.M.
The message made it very clear that Terminal 2 would explode soon if the given Bitcoin amount wasn’t transferred within the time limit.
As soon as the threat was recognized, airport security was tightened.
The unknown sender was charged with a crime.
The incident is being looked into by local police, who have filed a case against the unknown sender.
When asked about the threat, Vismay Pathak, an executive at MIAL, said, “I was at thequality and customer care center in the airport when I came across the threat mail.” The Times of India said, “The email said it would blow up the airport in 48 hours if the ransom was not paid.”
The police are now looking into the source of the threat by keeping an eye on the internet protocol (IP) address that was used to send the scary email.
The police station’s cyber section is working hard to find the person who made the threat.
Under sections 385 (Putting someone in fear of harm to commit extortion) and 505 (1)(b) of the Indian Penal Code, it is illegal to make statements meant to scare or alarm the public or disturb their peace. A case has been opened.
The authorities are working hard to make sure that both passengers and staff are safe.As things change, Mumbai’s airport stays on high watch, and officials are working hard to find the person who sent the dangerous message.
