NEW DELHI, Jan. 25 -- A Jet Airways passenger plane bound for Kathmandu was held up Monday by security officers at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here due to the warning of a suspicious object, local media reported.

The plane with about 110 people on board grounded after a threat call was received by security officials at noon, warning of a "gift box" under a seat in the aircraft, said Indian Express online.

The Flight 9W-260 was to take off from the IGI Airport in New Delhi at 13:25 p.m. local time. Seven crew members and about 104 guests were disembarked and searched.

India has been on terror alert ahead of its Republican Day celebrations on Tuesday, in which French President Francois Hollande is the state guest of honor.
