Bengaluru: Plane carrying Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday developed a technical snag with the party demanding a probe into the “suspicious and faulty performance” of the aircraft before landing at the Hubballi airport in North Karnataka.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation said in New Delhi that it would examine the issue, while the police said they have registered a complaint.
The plane suddenly tilted heavily on the left side and the altitude dipped steeply with violent shuddering of the aircraft body at 10.45 am, Gandhi’s close aide Kaushal Vidyarthi wrote in a letter to state DGP Neelmani N. Raju.
The letter said the weather was normal and not windy according to the passengers. “It was apparent from the suspicious and faulty performance of the aircraft that the incidents of shuddering and altitude dipping were not natural or weather-related, but were due to some technical snag…,” it said.
