NEW DELHI, Jan 18 - An IndiGo plane, carrying 186 passengers and crew, including two infants, from here to Dibrugarh was diverted to Kolkata due to a technical snag, forcing it to make an emergency landing there.

The no-frill carrier, however, claimed that the commander of its flight 6E-3645 decided to divert the aircraft as a �precautionary� measure and did not seek any emergency landing from Kolkata air traffic control (ATC).

IndiGo has reported the matter to the civil aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), besides setting up an internal probe to ascertain facts, the airline said in a statement.

�IndiGo�s captain-in-command operating Delhi-Dibrugarh flight 6E-3645, decided to divert aircraft to Kolkata due a technical snag as a precautionary measure... Despite that cockpit crew did not declare any emergency, ATC (Kolkata) declared full emergency on its own. The aircraft landed safely,� the airlines said in the statement. � PTI
