IndiGo passenger shouts hijack threat on Chandigarh-Srinagar flight, detained

A passenger aboard an IndiGo airlines’ Chandigarh-Srinagar flight was detained on Tuesday after he shouted that the flight had been hijacked.

“The staff of the flight lodged a complaint against the passenger after the flight landed at Srinagar. He has been detained,” a police officer said.

Sources said the threat seemed to be a prank and the credentials of the passenger were being ascertained.
