A Boeing 737 Jet Airways flight returned to Mumbai after several passengers on the Jaipur-bound flight on Thursday suffered nasal and ear bleeding due to loss in air cabin pressure.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) has sought a report from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation over the incident. Watch this video to know more.
