This is the second emergency landing for a SpiceJet flight in 15 days. On June 19, a Delhi-bound aircraft, with 185 passengers on board, made an emergency landing in Patna right after take-off as its left engine caught fire following a bird hit. All passengers were safely evacuated, officials said.
