A Jet Airways flight from Delhi to Khajurao on Sunday made a landing under emergency conditions here after a passenger claimed there was a bomb in the aircraft.

The passenger V R K Singh said that there was an explosive on the Delhi-Varanasi-Khajurao Boeing 737-9W723 but on questioning at the airport in Varanasi he claimed that he had made the remark in a lighter vein, airport sources said.

The flight was cleared for departure to Khajurao after extensive checking of the aircraft.

A Jet Airways spokesperson said the flight was delayed due to questioning of "certain guests" on security concerns by the airport authorities as well as security agencies.
