An Ahmedabad-bound SpiceJet flight aborted take-off at the last moment after a loader jumped off from the luggage section of the plane while it was taxiing on the runway at Dabolim airport in Panaji on Friday, police said.

Police officials said the incident happened at 4.45 pm.

"When the flight was on the runway, a loader was seen jumping from the baggage section of the plane. The pilot was immediately alerted about aborting the take-off," police officials said quoting eye-witness.

Authorities were yet to file a complaint against the loader who was not yet identified.

"The flight was allowed to take off after a thorough security check as the behaviour of the loader was found to be suspicious," police said.
