The Mumbai Police also began its investigation into the email and traced it to Hyderabad and informed city Police Commissioner Mahender Reddy.

Krishna came in contact with a woman from Chennai through social networking sites.

Police in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad on Thursday arrested 32-year-old Motaparthi Vamshi Krishna - a married man with a child -for allegedly sending a hoax email about an aircraft hijack plot in order to avoid going on a vacation with his online girlfriend.

"The unidentified woman wrote in the e-mail that what she heard could be "true or not" but she chose to inform the authorities as she felt it was her duty to do so as a citizen", a senior officer earlier said. As per sources close to Mumbai Mirror, he told the police that he resorted to the mischief as he had no money to fly to Pune to meet his girlfriend. Posing as a lady, he alerted the police and airport management that six people were planning to hijack certain planes flying from Hyderabad, Chennai and Mumbai.

After sending her the ticket, he created a fake email address and sent the hoax email to the police.

Mumbai police then alerted the security agencies, resulting in beefed up security at the concerned airports. He added that Vamshi was "unable to explain to girlfriend that he had no money for the trip, Vamshi chose to create a situation so that flights are cancelled". After examining CCTV footage, investigators were able to identify Krishna as the person behind the bogus tip.

In a bid to cancel the trip, he hatched a plan to make her believe that flights had been cancelled because of "high alert" at the airports, he said.

Krishna was charged with impersonation and providing false information, CNN reported. "Some incriminating material has been seized from his possession", Deputy Commissioner of Police (Task Force) B Limba Reddy told PTI.
