MUMBAI: Kanchan Thakur, a 27-year-old model, was arrested at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport here late last night, after she sounded a false alarm at the secutity check point. 

While on the way to board a plane to Delhi, after passing through security check, she told the guard that there was a bomb in the bag of her friend who was just behind her. This panicked the security guards who had their luggage offloaded from the plane. 

Thakur later retracted her statement as it started causing a delay to the flight. But, that led to a heated argument with the security guards. She was then taken to Sahar police station where she was arrested and then released on bail.
