The Hyderabad police today claimed to have apprehended the person behind the hoax email which talked about hijacking flights in Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai, which had created a panic on April 15.

The accused Motaparthi Vamshi Krishna, a transport agent and resident of Sanjana Amrutha Residency, Miyapur, revealed that he had sent the hoax mail to stop his girlfriend's trip to Mumbai and Goa, as he was unable to bear the expenses.

The facts of the case are as follows. On April 15, the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai, received an email from The sender, claiming to be a woman, stated that she overheard six men chatting in a hotel about how they needed to board flights in three cities the next day - Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai - to hijack them. Upon the tip, the Mumbai police alerted the concerned airport security agencies about a gang planning to hijack flights from the three airports.

As the mail was generated from Hyderabad, considering the seriousness and sensitivity of the issue, the Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad, instructed the Task Force team to check the veracity of the mail. The Task Force Police made sustained efforts and arrested the accused Vamsi Krishna.

During interrogation, the accused revealed that his girlfriend who stayed at Chennai proposed a trip to Mumbai & Goa. As he was facing financial problems he requested her to withdraw the trip proposal, but she denied his request and forced him to go to a trip to the two places. To get the trip cancelled, he hatched a plan to make her believe that the flights had been cancelled because of a high alert at the airports.

He created a fake flight booking ticket on her name and sent it to his girlfriend through his email. To make her believe the high alert at airports bit, he created a fake email id and sent the fake message to the Mumbai Police Commissioner.

Upon further questioning he revealed that previously, too, he was involved in two cases. He was arrested and handed over to the SHO, S R Nagar PS.
