New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) Flag carrier Air India Thursday said it has received an e-mail threatening to blow up Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA).
“The matter was reported to the police for investigation. We received the e-mail threat on a few of our mail Ids,” an airline spokesperson said in New Delhi.
