Agartala: September 21. In a horrifying incident, a 41-year-old man, identified as Biswajit Debnath was arrested for a reckless attempt to open one of the emergency doors of an Indigo flight which was about to land at Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport in Agartala on Thursday.

Police said the person is a resident of Jirania in Agartala was returning from Hyderabad, transiting through Guwahati en route to Agartala.

“As the flight was in the final stages of landing, Debnath tried to open one of the emergency door. A courageous air hostess leaped into action, rallying support from fellow passengers to subdue him.
