Jaipur: A high voltage drama was reported at the Jaipur Airport when a passenger on-board a Jet Airways flights took to twitter to inform Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the plane being possibly hijacked.

The scene was created at the airport, on Thursday last, when the flight 9W 355, from Mumbai to Delhi had been delayed and diverted to Jaipur due to poor weather conditions in the national capital.

There were as many as 176 people on-board, including eight crew members, out of which one passenger, asked the Prime Minister, through the micro blogging site, to help the people on-board as their plane has been possibly hijacked.

The Jet Airways immediately responded to his tweet saying, "Hi Nitin, our flight 9W 355 has been delayed due to air traffic congestion at Delhi."

The unsatisfied passenger, however, again tweeted to ask for the confirmation with proper justification as other flights schedule after that one got clearance from Mumbai to Delhi.

The passenger was, afterwards, offloaded for questioning by security agencies at the Jaipur airport and a thorough check was carried out at the Jaipur airport by security agencies.

Some necessary security protocols were also carried out after the plane landed at its original destination in Delhi.

The Jet Airways spokesperson said, "The information was promptly shared with the concerned authorities including the CISF, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) and local law enforcement agencies in line with Standard Operating Procedures.
