Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The IndiGo flight returned from the runway due to a sudden failure in the morning on Monday at Rajabhoj International Airport on Monday. When the fault could not be rectified, the passengers were de-planed and some passengers left by the evening flight.

According to the Airport officials, IndiGo's morning Mumbai flight number 6-E829 was to take off from Bhopal to Mumbai at around 11:30 am. About 120 passengers were on board the plane.

The aircraft developed a technical snag during run-way, so it was brought back to apron for safety. When the fault was not fixed, the passengers were told to deboard from the aircraft. Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders were also on board the plane.

Passengers were told that some noise was coming from the engine, so the crew diverted the plane back to apron for safety. Initially, the passengers were asked to wait for some time, some passengers canceled the journey by taking a refund and some passengers agreed to go to Mumbai by IndiGo's evening flight.
