Mumbai: The terror threats to the Mumbai domestic and international airports and the adjacent Taj Hotel have turned out to be a hoax, officials said here on Tuesday.

A phone call at around 12.40 a.m. to a landline number at the airport manager's office had warned about a planned terror hit at these sites with explosive-laden vehicles.

Describing it a "specific threat", the Mumbai police and airport security went into a state of high alert at all the three sites, which are already classified as a "high security zone".

Reportedly identified as Vishesh Kumar, the caller had warned that at least five vehicles would blow up between 9 to 10 a.m. at the three targeted sites with the impact would be much bigger than the 26/11 terror attack.
