Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh had a lucky escape as the aircraft carrying him had to land under emergency conditions due to a technical snag.

The incident took place last evening while Singh was on his way to Raipur from here, official sources said.

Singh had gone to Kharsiya village to attend a function along with other party leaders.

Later, when he left for Raipur, his plane suffered a hydraulic failure and had to return to the Jindal airstrip within 15 minutes of takeoff, the sources said.

After nearly five hours, Singh was flown to the capital, along with other BJP leaders, in a special aircraft, they said.
