The flight 6E719, en route to Visakhapatnam, was forced to return to the airport here after the smoke was detected.
The airline has faced a turbulent time over the past few weeks and hit the headlines all for wrong reasons.
Earlier this month, IndiGo was criticised for assaulting one of its passengers at the tarmac by its ground staff.
It hit the headlines again this week after it was accused of not accepting Indian currency notes from a passenger on board. In his complaint, Delhi-based Pramod Kumar Jain on Tuesday alleged that the airline crew allegedly refused to accept Indian currency when he ordered food. He later filed a complaint at the Sarojini Nagar Police Station against the airline.
