All the passengers on board the flight were reported to be safe.

Following the incident, all flights to Srinagar airport have been diverted to Chandigarh. 

Air India confirmed the incident through its official Twitter account and said that a relief aircraft was being sent to the Srinagar airport. 

The incident comes just months after an Air India plane's tyre burst while landing at the Nedumbassery airport in Kochi in February. 

The airliner was recently in a controversy after a passenger allegedly found a live lizard in his in-flight meal. Air India had, however, dismissed the media reports claiming lizard in its meal.
