    Emergency Landing for Delhi-bound Indigo Flight as Engine Catches Fire, Goa Minister Among Passengers

    New Delhi: A Delhi-bound IndiGo flight with 180 passengers on board on Sunday forcibly turned around and made an emergency landing at Goa airport within 15 minutes of take-off after a technical glitch was detected in the aircraft’s engine.

    According to reports, the Delhi-Goa flight (6E-336) that was carrying Goa Environment Minister Nilesh Cabral along with a team of officers among the passengers caught fire in its left engine.

    The engine fire caused panic among the passengers and everybody started screaming, the minister was quoted by Hindustan Times. However, the pilot handled the situation tactfully and flew the aircraft back on one engine, ensuring everyone’s safety, Cabral said.

    No injuries have been reported so far as the passengers were safely deboarded and given a later flight. The official staff of IndiGo is yet to comment on the occurrence.

    More details are awaited.
