Jet Airways flight diverted to Ahmedabad after Hijack scare

A hijack scare caused an emergency diversion of a Jet Airways flight on Monday morning.

The flight was diverted to Ahmedabad after a note was found in the flight saying that the flight was "covered by hijackers".

The note also mentioned that "Cargo area contains explosive bombs and will blast if you land in DEL". The note demanded that the flight should be taken to PoK-Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.

The flight from Mumbai to Delhi was then taken to Ahmedabad where all the passengers were asked to get out of the plane and were screened.

After investigation a passenger named Salla Birju was behind the note.

He confessed that he had placed the threat note in the toilet of the plane to “destabilise jet operations.”
