Mumbai/Nagpur: The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport police arrested a passenger following the passenger attempted to open the emergency door of IndiGo’s Nagpur-Mumbai flight after it landed in the city, a senior official said.

According to the official , the incident occurred on January 24 in the afternoon, when the flight from Nagpur airport to Mumbai took off around 11.05 am and when the plane touched down in Mumbai around 12.35 p.m , the indicator showed that someone was attempting to open the emergency door.

The crew members then rushed towards the door and noticed that a passenger had removed the cover of the emergency door handle, which the cabin crew reported to the captain, who decided to report the incident to the police after consulting with other seniors.

The case was registered after a senior cabin crew member on the IndiGo 6E-5274 flight filed a complaint.

We have registered a case under section 336 of the IPC for acts endangering life or personal safety of others and section 23(1)(b) of the 1937 Aircraft Rules (Assault and other acts endangering safety or jeopardising good order and discipline),said the official.

The passenger’s name has been given to them and they are taking statements from staff members before taking any action against him, he added.
