Hydraulic failure forces Air India plane to make emergency landing

New Delhi: Over 150 passengers on board a New Delhi-bound Air India flight from Varanasi had a close shave as the Airbus 320 plane landed under emergency conditions here due to a hydraulic failure.

After the plane touched down at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here, smoke was seen from under carriage and pilot opted for evacuation, sources said. 

"Air India flight AI 405 from Varanasi to Delhi had an emergency landing here as the pilot reported hydraulic failure. All passengers were evacuated safely, however, some 4-5 of them sustained minor injuries during evacuation," airport sources said. 

The flight had originated from Khajuraho for Varanasi and from where it took off for Delhi.
