Surat Police Foil Fleeing Attempt, Plane Stopped on Runway to Apprehend Accused

| Updated: July 2, 2024 15:42

The Surat Police halted a departing plane on the runway to apprehend an accused individual involved in a rioting case. The incident unfolded aboard an Indigo Airlines flight bound for Goa, scheduled for takeoff at 3:30 PM from Surat International Airport.

The accused, Kishan Ganpat Patel, was wanted by authorities for rioting and assaulting a security guard. Acting on intelligence, the Surat Police learned that Patel was attempting to flee the country on the Goa-bound flight. An emergency call from the police prompted the Air Traffic Control (ATC) to instruct the pilot to return the aircraft to the apron.

The pilot promptly complied, steering the plane back to the parking area. Passengers were informed of a brief technical delay to prevent panic. Meanwhile, the airport authorities alerted the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, who swiftly responded within five minutes.

As the plane docked at the aerobridge, a joint team comprising Hajira police, airport police, and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans boarded the aircraft. They apprehended Kishan Patel, who was travelling with his family. The family’s protests caused a minor disruption, but Patel, a 26-year-old resident of Hazira village, was taken into custody.

The unplanned detention led to a delay in the flight’s departure, pushing it from the scheduled 3:25 PM to 4:47 PM. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) promptly submitted a preliminary report to the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to explain the situation.
