Thursday's bomb threat made by a passenger on IndiGo's Patna-Delhi flight turned out to be a hoax, according to sources.

Following the bogus threat, they added, the flight, which was set to depart at 8.20 PM, had to be grounded.

Everyone was able to leave the vehicle unharmed. A source claimed that despite searching the plane, nothing was discovered.

The local police detained the traveller who disseminated the fake. According to sources, the flight is scheduled to depart for Delhi on Friday morning.

In response to PTI's request for a statement on the subject, IndiGo remained silent.
