Spurned man sends airline fake bomb threat

IN an attempt to get a girl who rejected him into trouble, a 27-year-old man named Prasanna from Thanjavur, India, sent a fake bomb threat to the IndiGo Airline office in Chennai, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The email, sent on June 16, falsely claimed there was a bomb on a flight to Mumbai.

Authorities thoroughly searched the plane and found no explosives.

The investigation revealed that Prasanna, an unemployed graduate, was apparently in love with a girl who did not share his affections. Hurt by her rejection, Prasanna sent the fake email in her name in an attempt to get her in trouble with the law.

Prasanna was arrested and is awaiting sentencing.

> Indian families allocated land for houses by the Perak government have been waiting for basic amenities for six years, Malaysia Nanban reported.

P. Bala, 65, representing the residents said 80 families were given unused land in Kampung Batu, Menglembu, in 2018.

Only 10 families have built houses and moved in while the others are waiting for basic infrastructure to be completed.

Despite repeated complaints, including to the Mentri Besar’s office, the families living there lack running water, drainage and proper access roads.
