New Delhi:

A Jet Airways 9W339 Mumbai-Delhi flight has been diverted to Ahmedabad following declaration of emergency as per established security procedures due to detection of an onboard security threat. 

The Jet Airways aircraft landed at Ahmedabad without the report of any untoward incident and was parked at a remote bay where all 115 passengers and 7 crew members have safely deplaned. 

Security agencies say Jet Airways flight was diverted to Ahmedabad after a threatening note was recovered from the toilet.   

The note read "The aircraft is covered by hijackers, should not land in Delhi, should be flown straight to PoK. Don't take it as a joke. Cargo area contains explosive bombs and will blast if you land in Delhi," said security agencies.  

(Further details awaited)
