Srinagar: A passenger aboard an IndiGo airlines' Chandigarh-Srinagar flight was detained on Tuesday after he shouted on board that the flight had been hijacked.

"The staff of the flight lodged a complaint against the passenger after the flight landed at Srinagar. He has been detained," a police officer said.
