Amritsar: A suspicious bag was found inside an Amritsar-bound SpiceJet flight on Thursday. According to reports, all passengers were de-boarded safely at the Guru Ram Das Jee International Airport.
The aircraft was removed from the runway and parked in an isolated spot for the search. A bomb disposal squad of security agencies entered the aircraft to carry out a search operation.
SpiceJet Flight 56, which departed from Dubai at 4.05 am, arrived here at 8.51 am. Reports say that the Air Traffic Control was alerted after a bag was found unattended by the SpiceJet flight crew.
