An IndiGo flight from Dubai to Kozhikode made an emergency landing at the Mumbai airport Thursday morning following alleged unruly behaviour of a passenger.

“An IndiGo flight from Dubai to Kozhikode made an emergency landing at Mumbai airport at 0915 hrs due to unruly behaviour of a passenger,” a Mumbai airport official said.

“After offloading them, the flight took off to its scheduled destination at 1050 hrs,” he said.

The airport police said one passenger has been detained for questioning.

However, the official denied reports that the passenger raised pro-ISIS slogans. The details of the detained passenger were awaited.

In a statement, IndiGo airlines confirmed the diversion of its flight (Dubai-Kozhikode) to Mumbai this morning on grounds of unruly behaviour on board.

A little before landing, a passenger seated on 5D (who was accompanied by his brother) suddenly started misbehaving with the crew. He jumped on the forward cart (which is used for food and onboard merchandise) and sat on it. The crew immediately informed the Captain-in-command and the lead crew. The crew politely requested the passenger to step down from the cart and he obliged. After stepping down from the cart, the passenger suddenly got violent and started physically abusing the co-passenger, IndiGo said.

Taking precautionary measure, the Captain immediately informed the Air Traffic control (ATC) and the ground security staff about the situation onboard.

The flight made the precautionary landing at the Mumbai airport where this passenger was handed over to the CISF for further investigations. The matter is now with the local authorities, the airline further said.

      Congress will win next election only if it pes GST without consutional cap on tax rate. lt;br/gt;Common man in villages knows that consutional cap will burden their lives and hamper poverty alleviation becauselt;br/gt;it will cause State govts to impose individual state taxes to make up for shortfall in GST common tax.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Consution is a policy doc, and not a law specifying fixed tax rate within itself as a policy. .lt;br/gt;Specific Tax rate should be placed in rules or statutes. Since tax rate is dynamic, it needs to be adjusted according to the economic situation, or natural disasters, or war time, or government policy to encourage industry and social welfare.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;GST is brain child of Congress, therefore Congress will win the next election if it pes GST without Consutional Cap. lt;br/gt;People are smart enough to know that Consutional Caps are harmful to the growth of country lt;br/gt;and will only make people more poor and subject them to old-era Babu-Bureaucrat-License Raj which has failed. lt;br/gt;New-era young Congress will win all elections because it has shed old ideas.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Congress will win UP elections after GST is ped immediately. Each day of delay makes people in villages lose faith in Congress, so Congress should immediately cash on the sentiment and p GST to garner maximum number of votes for victory in UP election and 2019 national elections.

          There is a reason why the name and antecedents of the man havent been revealed.lt;br/gt;This event was orchestrated,planned and executed by the people who gain from the panic and communal divide in the country.lt;br/gt;If they were to reveal the background and name of the person, this charade would be blown away by the truth.lt;br/gt;------------------------------lt;br/gt;These operations are known as psy-ops in espionage terms.

            Why did Media claim he shouted Pro ISIS slogans?lt;br/gt;Was this misleading input deliberately spread by those in power ?lt;br/gt;Who gave this lead to the press ?lt;br/gt;What is the name of this penger ?lt;br/gt;-----------------------------------lt;br/gt;Seems like a typical 'false flag' operation.lt;br/gt;A false flag operation is used by spy agencies to create an event which will point fingers at somebody else.lt;br/gt;-----------------------------------lt;br/gt;RSS is an expert in these sort of operations.lt;br/gt;-----------------------------------lt;br/gt;Recent example is the 'National Anthem' dishonour case from a cinema in Kurla,Mumbai.lt;br/gt;Till date nobody knows what was the source of that footage or who was shown in it.lt;br/gt;If you want to travel further into the past,there have been umpteen instances where Pak Flags have been hoisted in the middle of the night in Muslim Majority areas and riots attempted at day break by RSS and its affiliated gangs.lt;br/gt;Then there was the monkey man episode in mid nineties in Delhi where people were terrorized supposedly by a half man-half beast creature.lt;br/gt;It was deliberately planned and carried out in Muslim majority areas by RSS gang to spread fear and panic.99% of victims were Muslims and most were attacked while sleeping in the open in peak summer.Go and check the police records of all reported cases.This is confirmed information.lt;br/gt;----------------------------------------------------------
