Nagpur: A Dhaka-bound flight from Jeddah carrying 282 Haj pilgrims and crew made an unscheduled landing here Thursday morning after one of the fliers complained of severe chest pain, airport officials said.

The GMG Airlines' flight was carrying Haj pilgrims who were returning to Bangladesh from Saudi Arabia.

One of the passengers complained of severe chest pain when the aircraft was nearing Nagpur ATC. The pilot sought permission and the plane landed at the Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport, they said.

A medical team from a private hospital was rushed to the airport to attend to the passenger, who was not identified.

The flight later left for its destination with the passenger, officials added.
