An Azur Air flight from Moscow to India's coastal state of Goa was diverted to Jamnagar in Gujarat state on Monday after receiving a bomb threat.
Indian security officials, including the National Security Guard (NSG), have found no suspicious objects on the Moscow-Goa charter flight that made an emergency landing in Jamnagar following the false alarm on Monday, according to a Jamnagar Airport official.

“All the 236 passengers and 8 crew members are safe. We have not found anything suspicious in the plane,” a Jamnagar police official informed Sputnik.

The flight is scheduled to depart from Jamnagar to Goa at 13.30 IST on Tuesday, the airport Director said.
As a precautionary measure, security at Dabolim Airport in Goa has been increased and emergency services have been placed on standby.
"We are watching the activities here. There is nothing to worry about. This can also be a rumor. But we are not taking any chances," Vasco's Deputy Superintendent of Police Salim Shaikh said.
Late Monday, the Russian Embassy in India confirmed in a statement that all passengers and crew on board the Azur Air flight were safe. The Embassy also said it was in contact with the Indian authorities in connection with the incident, the diplomatic mission told Sputnik.
