A Delta flight landed in emergency conditions in Mumbai Thursday night after a report of suspicious cargo on board, an Indian official said.
"The security agencies are checking the cargo," said airport spokesman Manish Kalghatgi.
The plane from Amsterdam landed at Mumbai's international airport at 11pm and was immediately taken to an isolated bay, where it was being inspected by bomb squads and airport security, Kalghatgi said.
All 244 passengers on board Delta flight 70 were evacuated safely, he said.
