Passenger Admits to Planting 'Bomb Letter' In Jet Airways Flight Bathroom

Mumbai-Delhi Jet Airways flight 9W339 was diverted to Ahmedabad after an "onboard security threat"
A passenger on a Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Delhi has confessed to keeping a threatening note in a bathroom, which set off a hijack alert, Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju said today.

"A man Salla Birju has confessed that he had kept the threatening note to destabilise operations in the Jet Airways flight," said the minister, adding that he had advised Jet Airways to "put him on the no-fly list immediately apart from other criminal action". If the airline does so, this could be the first passenger to make it to the no-fly list after new rules were enforced in September to allow airlines to ban unruly passengers for periods ranging from three months to over two years.

This morning, the Jet Airways flight 9W339 took off a little before 3 am from Mumbai and was soon diverted to Ahmedabad, where it landed 45 minutes later. The airline, in a statement, said the plane was diverted after the "declaration of an emergency as per established security procedures, due to the detection of an onboard security threat".
What had set off the scare was a printed letter in the bathroom in Urdu and English, which suggested that there was a bomb in the cargo of the plane. It said that the flight "is covered by hijackers and aircraft should not be land and flown straight to POK."

The pilot of the Boeing 737-900 plane reportedly pressed the hijack button, alerting the Ahmedabad airport to a threat. After the plane, with 122 passengers including seven crew members, landed in Ahmedabad, everyone was screened and their  bags checked. The passengers were photographed and questioned for hours on details like their last overseas visit, according to news agency PTI. The flight took off for Delhi six hours later
