Man to be sentenced for bomb threat

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (AP) -

A Rhode Island man is facing sentencing this week for threatening to bomb a Connecticut company.

Shaneel Jain of Cumberland is to be sentenced Thursday in Hartford federal court. A jury found Jain guilty in July of making a bomb threat against Wallingford-based Z-Medica Corp., which makes a medical agent that rapidly stops bleeding.

Jain made telephone calls from India in 2010 in which he threatened to bomb Z-Medica within 24 hours and said he was a terrorist. Jain was involved in a lawsuit with Z-Medica based on their prior business relationship.

Prosecutors say the threats prompted authorities to search the company. Z-Medica used private security for weeks and cancelled shifts, delaying an order.

No bomb was found.

Jain's attorney says it was aberrant behavior and his client is remorseful.
