Bengaluru: A male passenger was arrested for allegedly trying to open the emergency door of an Indigo flight prior to take-off, police said on Monday.
Swapnil Holey, who had boarded the Bengaluru-bound Indigo flight 6E 6803 from Nagpur around 10 pm on September 30, was seated next to the emergency exit door of the aircraft, informed police.
