Delhi-Ranchi flyer tries to open emergency door midair

New Delhi: A passenger flying from Delhi to Ranchi on Monday night allegedly tried to open the aircraft's emergency door just before the flight was about to land.
The 32-year-old flyer, Aftab Ahmed, also injured some co-passengers and crew members who tried to stop him, said a CISF official.
Luckily, the unruly flyer was unable to open the Airbus A-320 emergency gate and the plane landed safely, following which he was handed over to the local police.
This latest incident of a passenger causing midair ruckus took place on AirAsia flight I5-546 (Delhi-Ranchi-Kolkata).
