An ill-fated IndiGo plane from Tirupati suffered a tire burst immediately on landing at the Hyderabad airport.
Veteran actress and YSRCP MLA Roja, who was on the flight, had a narrow escape after the tire burst at Shamshabad airport.
Later, speaking to the media, Roja said that all the passengers were safe and claimed that they recorded the burst experience.
According to IndiGo spokespersons, two flights were said to have been diverted to Bengaluru airport as their aircraft got stuck on the runway. This forced the authorities to suspend operations.
An IndiGo statement said, “The 72 passengers and one infant and four crew members are safe.”
