None of the passengers or the crew members of the flight was reported to be injured. Fortunately, the bullet was shot into the officer’s luggage instead of any passenger or crew.

 

 

The Flight VY3420 had to be delayed for half an hour after the incident as engineers had to be called in to check for possible damages in the aircraft.

The officer moved to the side of the jet to remove the gun and the bullets but the bullet somehow discharged and filled the cabin with the stench of gunpowder.
