This incident follows a similar scare in April when a bomb threat call targetted Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport's Terminal 1. The hoax call, made by an unidentified individual, warned of a bomb at the terminal, prompting immediate police action.

The police registered a case based on a complaint by Gitanjali Nerurkar, a senior executive officer at Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL). According to the FIR, Nerurkar received a call on her duty phone from an unknown number.

The caller, without identifying himself, said "Terminal 1 Bomb" and claimed to be calling from "Navpada" in an English accent. The caller then reiterated the threat, mentioning "Terminal 1, Gate no. 1," before hanging up with a cryptic "Best of luck."
