The other passengers present in the airport were also scarred and the staff of the airport was also very much frightened. A mid such an atmosphere, the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) had checked the entire flight, its passengers and their luggage and after clearing the light, all the passengers were taken to a safer place and they were questioned.
