Airport sources said that the incident took place at around 3.39 a.m. when a London- bound aircraft of Qatar Airways via Doha was just about to take off. One of the passengers then suddenly started shouting claiming that a bomb had been planted inside the said aircraft.

The passengers were brought down quickly and a thorough search was conducted with police dogs.

After finding nothing suspicious, the Qatar Airlines flight took off from Kolkata around 9 am.

According to airport sources, the family of the passenger said that he is mentally unsound.
