It was travelling from Dibrugarh and it had to be diverted to the city of Kolkata that is located in the Indian state of West Bengal.

 

A technical snag is believed to have caused the emergency landing.

 

The no-frill carrier later asserted that the commander of its flight 6E-3645 had planned to divert the aircraft as part of a precautionary measure. However, it had not taken any emergency landing from ATC or Kolkata Air Traffic Control. IndiGo had reported the matter to the civil aviation regulator, who is the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

 

Apart from that, they had also established an internal probe to ascertain facts, as declared by the airlines in an official statement.

 

So, it was basically due to a technical fault that the flight of IndiGo had to go for the emergency landing in Kolkata.

 

IndiGo said in a statement that though the crew of the cockpit did not declare any kind of emergency, ATC (Kolkata) had to call for an emergency on its own. Thereafter, the aircraft was able to make a perfectly safe landing. There were 178  passengers and two infants onboard the flight apart from six crew members on this flight, according to a spokesperson of IndiGo.
