The bizarre incident happened around 9.20 pm at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport when Air India's flight IC 602 (Delhi-Mumbai) was readying to taxi towards the runway.

The aircraft, in the parking bay, had to be 'pushed back' and this is when technician Raj Kishore (45) accidentally fell down and his feet came beneath the moving plane's nose wheel.

The Air India is also conducting an internal inquiry and has grounded the pilot in command and aircraft till the completion of inquiry.
