GoAir plane with Gen V K Singh on board makes emergency landing

November 16, 2013 14:06 IST

A Mumbai-bound GoAir flight with nearly 100 passengers, including former army chief General V K Singh on board, was forced to return to Delhi airport following a fire alarm on Saturday morning.

The Airbus A-320 returned under emergency conditions to Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport after it had been airborne for nearly 40 minutes.

Upon landing at the airport, the passengers were shifted to another aircraft, which flew them to Mumbai.

The former army chief was on his way to Mumbai to launch his book at the ongoing Mumbai Literary Festival.
