New Delhi: Samsung on Thursday said there has been no incident with regard to Galaxy Note 7 in India as not even a single unit of the device was sold in the country.

"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.

On September 23 this year, the cabin crew observed smoke from a mobile phone kept in a laptop bag in the overhead baggage rack in the flight.

Sinha said action was taken to control and douse the affected article as per procedure while no injury to any passenger or crew was reported.

"Matter was investigated by DGCA and during the investigation, it was observed that the damage to the battery of a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had led to the said occurrence," Sinha said in the written reply.
