Envious of his friend going to Canada, a 24-year-old jobless man from Hyderabad, India, sent bomb blast threat email to the airport to stop the flight. However, his misdeed landed him in legal soup after cyber police tracked him down.  
According to reports in India Today, the Rajeev Gandhi International Airport received an email on Tuesday (September 3) from an unknown individual claiming to blast a bomb there on Wednesday (September 4). An extensive search operation followed but when cops found nothing suspicious, they realized the email was a hoax.
Cyber cops arrested the accused, Katraju Shahshikanth, for sending the hoax email and discovered he was jealous of his friend, Sairam, going to Canada for further studies. Shahshikanth also wrote a fake email to Canadian immigration officials asking them to cancel Sairam's visa. But all his efforts to stall Sairam's flight went in vain and Shahshikanth has been booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code.
