Man identified for threatening to ‘hijack Mumbai-Delhi plane’; heres more

A Mumbai-Delhi Jet Airways flight was diverted to Ahmedabad to make an emergency landing on Monday after a letter was recovered from airplane’s toilet warning of an imminent hijack attempt.

After the flight landed, the Crime Branch took two passengers for interrogation and one reportedly was later detained.

Meanwhile, Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju revealed in his tweet that the man who wrote the letter has been identified but did not reveal any details. He advised the airlines to put the miscreant on its no-fly list and said statutory criminal action would also be initiated.

Flight 9W 339, with 115 passengers and seven crew members, landed without incident at Ahmedabad and all 122 safely “deplaned”, a Jet Airways spokesperson said.

The flight had taken off from Mumbai at 2.55 am and landed at Ahmedabad airport around 3.45 am.

The flight was “diverted to Ahmedabad following declaration of an emergency as per established security procedures, due to the detection of an onboard security threat”, the spokesperson said.

The threat note, as reported by media outlets, said: “Flight must not land, flight will be flown to PoK. If you put landing gear, you will hear people dying.”

The message was passed on to the pilot, who is believed to have pressed the hijack alert button, following which the plane made an emergency landing.

A correspondent by profession, Rajkumar Leishemba, who was on board, said the flight was diverted to Ahmedabad citing “security reasons”.

All the passengers deplaned and screened. They were photographed and questioned by security personnel on various details, including their last overseas visit, he said.

After more than six hours at the airport here, the flight carrying the passengers took off for Delhi around 10.30 am, he said.

“Passengers were profiled, taken photographs and all personal details sought…,” Leishemba said on Twitter.
