New Delhi: A staff member of IndiGo airlines was arrested on Sunday for making a hoax call regarding a bomb in a Mumbai-bound flight at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi.

The interrogation revealed that after passing his standard 12th exams, the accused completed a diploma course in Hospitality and Aviation from a private institute in the year 2013. Subsequently, he started working in the aviation Sector and was employed as ‘Customer Service Officer’ in the airlines at Pune.
