A Jammu-bound flight with Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand and several high profile people on board today made an emergency landing at Srinagar International Airport minutes after it took off.

The Spice Jet flight returned to Srinagar Airport soon after it took off on Saturday afternoon as it developed a technical snag, an official of the Airport Authority said.

Among the passengers were the Tara Chand and minister of state for home Nasir Aslam Wani and several senior state government officials who later boarded another flight to Jammu, the official said.

Tests were being conducted on the plane to check its flight safety, he added.
