Five unclaimed suitcases found lying at the Airport's apron in Chennai created a flutter on Thursday.

According to officials, the suitcases were found at Apron 34 from where a Colombo-bound Jet Airways had taken off, triggering a bomb-scare.

CISF and bomb disposal squad (BDS) cordoned off the area and did not allow planes to be parked at Aprons 31, 34 and 35.

When the BDS personnel opened the suitcases they found it contained only clothes, officials said, adding the loaders could have failed to put them in the designated flight.
