from here today, an official spokesperson said.

The pilot of the Go Air flight G8-201 asked for emergency landing after a smoke warning from the cargo compartment was on. The flight which took off at 9.23 am from Delhi landed safely at 9.41 am, he said.

"All the 165 passengers and six crew members onboard are safe," the spokesperson said, adding that there is no casualty reported.
