New Delhi, Mar 31: Kolkata bound Air India flight on Tuesday, Mar 31 had to land within few minutes of take off as a passenger created a high drama on board. The Air India's flight IC-401, with 104 passengers and cabin crew, was scheduled to take off for Kolkata at around 7 am. A passenger raised suspicion over behaviour of three co-passengers, who later turned out to be members of a security agency.

The air hostess then informed the pilot, who decided to abort the take-off and asked the Air Traffic Control (ATC) to allow him return to the parking bay from the take-off point.

After the plane landed, airline's security staff and CISF personnel boarded the plane and asked the three passengers to prove their identity.

"After a verification, it was found that they were security officials going to Imphal," a senior CISF official said, following which they were allowed to continue their journey. The plane finally took off after a two-hour delay.
