An aviation mishap was averted at Patna Airport when a tyre of an Indigo flight burst on Friday evening. The plane was meant to fly to Delhi. All the passengers have been evacuated, and the air traffic has been suspended.
Some sources reveal that Indigo said there wasn't any burst tire, but the plane was de-boarded on account of smoke from the cabin.
Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi, Union minister Ram Kripal Yadav and others were to board the flight for Delhi to attend the GST announcement at midnight..
