A Mumbai-bound Air India flight with 70 passengers on board made an emergency landing at the Raja Bhoj airport within 15 minutes of its take-off for Indore due to a technical snag, sources said on Thursday.

The hydraulic system of plane AI-634 developed some snag last because of which it had to be brought back to the airport, after its departure at 20.30 hours.

The flight was officially cancelled at 2130 hours after engineers failed to rectify the snag, airport sources added.

The flight scheduled from New Delhi at 1915 hours, halts at Bhopal and Indore, on its way to Mumbai.

All the passengers were deplaned safely and were taken to Indore and Mumbai by another flight on Thursday morning.
