A Kozhikode-bound Indigo airlines flight flying to Dubai made an emergency landing at Mumbai Airport. A passenger started making a speech in favour of the dreaded terror outfit Islamic state following which the flight was made to land in Mumbai Airport.
The passenger is suspected to be a Keralite. He started speaking in support of ISIS and the group’s ideals when the flight was airborne.
According to media reports, other passengers asked him to stop but he did not heed it and became violent. However, the fellow passengers overpowered him when he refused to listen to anyone.
The man, along with another person is now being interrogated by the CISF at Mumbai airport.
The deputy commissioner of CIAL police at Mumbai spoke to the media stating that two passengers are in custody after the airlines complained of them fighting on board the plane but cannot immediately confirm if they had chanted ISIS slogans.
IndiGo airlines released a statement saying that the particular passenger was misbehaving with crew members of the Dubai-Kozhikode flight. He hopped and sat on the forward cart which is used to serve food.
The flight resumed its journey an hour later and reached Kozhikode 3 hours late.
More details are yet to release.
