Class 2 student threatens to blow-up Patna airport

Taking inspiration from a Bhojpuri film, a Class 2 student has threatened to blow up the Jai Prajash Narayan International airport in Patna. According to the police, a threat call was made to the airport authorities by an eight-year-old boy.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Rajesh Kumar Prabhakar said the boy told the police team that he was inspired by the Bhojpuri film, "Train se Pakistan", in which there was a scene of a phone call threatening to blow up an airport.

Later, a probe was launched to get the details of the phone number from which the call was made. 

It was found that the number was registered in the name of Siddhanth Sharma of Birla Colony.

Prabhakar said that when the police team was interrogating Sharma, his grand-son innocently confessed that it was him to had made the call by using his grandfather's phone. The boy was then taken into custody. 

"The boy informed the police that when his grandfather was asleep, he had used his mobile phone. First, he found the number of the Patna airport on Google and then proceeded to make the call," the DSP added.

The police, however, released the boy after his father issued a bond and assured that he would never repeat the mistake.

"Police have treated it as a childish mistake but directed the family to keep a close watch on the boy," Prabhakar noted.

Patna Superintendent of Police P.K. Das said: "Police has decided to let him go with a warning that boy should not repeat it (incident) in the future."
