Panic over hoax call on missing plane

Jaipur: Panic gripped personnel at Air Traffic Control (ATC) of Jaipur airport, Jaipur police and district administration on Saturday evening when a phone call claiming to be from ATC Jodhpur informed them about a missing plane.

Acting swiftly, the authorities adopted Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and after being on their toes for almost three hours, found it to be hoax.

Initially, the authorities did not rule out the possibility of a plane crash or even hijack and scanned the entire 70-km area as suggested in the call.
