"We can confirm that there has been no incident with regard to Note 7 in India. In fact, not a single unit of Note 7 was sold in India," a Samsung India spokesperson said in a late-evening statement.

The statement follows a written reply to the Lok Sabha today by Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha who citing aviation regulator DGCA's findings said damage to the battery of a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 led to smoke emanating from a laptop bag kept in the overhead baggage compartment of a flight from Singapore to Chennai in September.
