A Goa-bound chartered flight from Russian capital Moscow with 240 passengers on board was diverted to Uzbekistan within the early hours of the morning right now following a bomb risk, police mentioned.
The flight was scheduled to land on the Dabolim airport in Goa at 4:15 am, a senior police official advised information company Press Trust of India.
The flight (AZV2463) operated by Azur Air was diverted earlier than it entered the Indian air house, he advised Press Trust of India.
“It was diverted after an email was received at 12:30 am by the Dabolim airport director that mentioned about a bomb being planted on the plane,” the official mentioned.
The incident occurred almost two weeks after a Moscow-to-Goa flight made an emergency touchdown at Gujarat’s Jamnagar airport following a bomb risk.
