New Delhi, 19 January 2022

As per news report of NDTV, the incident of a serious safety breach was reported to India's aviation regulator DGCA and a team under DGCA Director General Arun Kumar was constituted for a thorough investigation. "We are investigating and shall take the strictest action against those found delinquent," Mr Kumar told ANI. Indigo Airlines declined to comment on the incident. According to officials, a close shave of two Indigo flights from Bangalore to Kolkata and the other from Bhubaneswar shows negligence and miscommunications between radar operators and ATC officials, because two aircraft can't operate on the same air path.
