Airport sources said the pilot of the Bangalore bound flight which took off at 6 pm made an emergency landing at the NSC Bose International Airport here when he realised that something "had hit the plane".

According to an airport source, the plane was hit by a bird.

No one on board the plane was injured and the aircraft was also not damaged.

The flight again took-off for Bangalore after a one and a half hour delay.
