MUMBAI: Security at the city airport was beefed up on Wednesday, a day after a 'terror strike'alert was found scribbled on a wall in the men's toilet at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA). The message on the toilet wall read: 'CSI ATTECK BY ISIS DATE 10/01/15'.

After this alert warning of a January 10 attack by terror group ISIS, passengers entering and leaving the airport were being scanned thoroughly.

On Monday evening, Air India's call centre in Thane received an anonymous phone call on Monday evening, warning of a 'terror attack'. A day later, a staffer who was cleaning the airport toilet found the above message scrawled on the wall of the toilet. This staffer alerted the Central Industrial Security Force, which handles airport security.

Even as security measures at the airport have been heightened, the police said the threat is a "non-specific'' In security parlance, non-specific alerts are random threats which are devoid of any specific details, said official of Air India.

"Generally, non-specific threat alerts are not seen as serious as against specific threats. Non-specific alerts generally turn out to be hoax calls," said the official.

A probe is on by different agencies, and housekeeping employees are being questioned. So far no case registered in the matter. A police officer with the immigration department said that it is unclear if the threat is real or a prank." \Deputy commissioner of police Virendra Mishra said, "We suspected this to be some mischief, we are not taking any chances. Security has been beefed up."

Assistant commissioner of police (airport), Madhukar Sankhe, said that closed- circuit television cameras at the airport were being examined. "We're going through the footage for those who used the toilet late evening," said Sankhe.,Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport
