After take-off at 9.45 am, on the way to Mumbai, the aircraft developed a technical snag in the engine, which forced the pilot to make an emergency landing at Nagpur airport, sources said.
Airport officials stated that all the passengers were safe. Jetlite said that the passengers were deplaned safely and were taken to Mumbai by another flight at 11.30 am.
Nagpur India Against Corruption coordinator Ajay Sanghi, who had a talk with Bedi on mobile, told PTI that the former IPS officer praised the pilot for safe landing.
Bedi had gone to Jamshedpur for a talk show, and was heading to Mumbai to participate in the ongoing World Economic Forum meet.
