Bomb scare forces Singapore Airlines plane to land

A Singapore Airlines aircraft flying from Moscow to Singapore made an emergency landing in the Indian city of Kolkata following a bomb scare. The aircraft landed safely despite being refused permission to land in New Delhi due to the heightened security surrounding the opening of the Commonwealth Games.

“The pilot changed course of the plane after a bomb alert from Moscow police,” Kolkata airport director R Srinivasan said to local media. “The pilot immediately informed New Delhi airport about the alert, but was denied permission to land because of high security and restrictions for the opening of the Commonwealth Games in the capital.”
