Mumbai: Youth arrested for making hoax calls to airlines
Vikas Yadav used to call offices of the airliners and threatened to blow up their planes if Kasab was not released, police said.
Mumbai: The Mumbai police on Saturday arrested a 19-year old youth who used to make hoax calls to airline companies seeking release of the now executed 26/11 Mumbai terror attack convict Mohammed Ajmal Kasab.
"We have arrested one Vikas Yadav who used to call offices of the airliners and threatened to blow up their planes if Kasab was not released," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ambadas Pote said.
He said that Yadav's calls would result in extensive checking and delayed flights. "A team was sent to Bihar and Gujarat and we later zeroed his location at Vapi in Gujarat," said Pote adding six mobile phones and five sim cards were seized from his possession.
Yadav, a fifth standard drop out, was booked under the stringent Suppression of Unlawful Act against Safety of Civil Aviation, Information Technology Act and Indian Penal Code.
Incidentally, a trial is pending against Yadav and his father for allegedly making a phone call, posing as underworld fugitive Dawood Ibrahim and threatening to blow off Rajdhani Express.
