An Indian man was charged for making a bomb threat over the phone at the Mumbai airport on Sunday, but he says he was misunderstood: he was simply asking about the “Bom-Del status,” referring to his flight going from Bombay (now called Mumbai) to Delhi.
But investigators don't buy his explanation. According to The Guardian:
Police allege that Moorjani, 45, was frustrated with flight delays and used a phone booth in the airport to call its toll-free number, warning the operator “bomb fata hai” – a bomb has exploded. He then immediately hung up.
Investigators claim he made the threat in order to delay all outbound flights from Delhi so he would not miss a connecting flight to Rome, according to Press Trust of India.
Hmm. Sounds both logical and fishy. Perhaps it's time to change the airport's old city code from BOM to MUM to avoid future "mixups."
