They are required to get their flight plan approved by the Air Traffic Control and then are free to fly. We will get a detailed report and provide the facts, Sinha also said.

    The Congress says that it had to take its MLAs out of the Eagleton Resort in Bidadi after the Karnataka government withdrew security cover. The MLAs would now be lodged in Kochi and 100 rooms were booked for this purpose at the Crowne Plaza and Brunton Boatyard.
