Complaints of passengers against the pilot, who sent a hijack alert in panic, and also the pilot's complaints against passengers would be looked into, he said. The Chief Minister said he has instructed director general of police KS Balasubramaniam to investigate the matter.

Around 200 passengers of an Air India Kochi-bound flight from Abu Dhabi protested and some allegedly tried to enter the cockpit after it was diverted here due to poor visibility.
