    IndiGo Plane Makes Emergency Landing In Odisha After Assam Passenger’s Unruly Behaviour

    Guwahati, June 24, 2019

    A Guwahati-bound flight from Hyderabad made an emergency landing at the Biju Patnaik International Airport in Odisha on June 23rd, 2019 after a passenger from Assam allegedly indulged in unruly behaviour on board. The youth was identified as 20-year-old Irshad Ali of Jamunamukh area in Assam.

    The IndiGo flight from Hyderabad to Guwahati landed in Odisha after it was diverted under the emergency protocol. Ali was deplaned and handed over to the airport police. As per information available, Ali was suffering from fever at the time of boarding the flight.

    It is said that Ali along with one of his friends, Abdul Karim, also from Assam, boarded the Indigo flight for Guwahati from Hyderabad following his mother’s illness. He has been working at an ice-cream parlour of Pune in Maharashtra for the past five years.

    As per reports, Ali started to behave abnormally in the Guwahati-bound plane. The passengers on board were scared after Ali created a ruckus and even tried to open a door of the aircraft. The crew, consequently, decided to force-land the airliner at Biju Patnaik International Airport immediately at 6: 10 am.

    The family members of Ali have been informed by the police and they are expected to reach Odisha at the earliest.

    The Odisha Sun Times reported, Ali was later admitted to the Capital Hospital in Odisha. The aircraft later resumed its journey to Guwahati at 7.13 am and reached the destination around 8.30 am.
