An Air India airplane fell into the turbulence zone during the flight between Amritsar and New Delhi on April 19, due to a strong shaking, the window glass fell out.

The three passengers who were injured were not seriously hurt but were treated upon landing for minor injuries. But in another interview, less than a fortnight ago, Tata Sons Chairman Natarajan Chandrasekaran said that the group would consider if adding another airline to its aviation business would make sense to its business prospects. The blast shattered a window, killing a passenger, in the first US passenger airline fatality since 2009.

A 50-second long video clip of happenings inside that flight that has gone viral shows an air hostess trying to fix the window panel that came off and pacifying an elderly woman passenger seated on that particular window seat.

According to media reports, one the injured passengers probably did not fasten his seat belt and bumped his head against the luggage compartment. Two passengers suffered minor injuries.

Three passengers have been injured on a flight in India that experienced bad turbulence.

In an unusual move , Iran's state-run media admitted that seven of its "soldiers" were killed in the April 9 strike. It was the first direct attack carried out against Israel by Iran without the use of proxies, from Syrian territory.

The government expects this to allay concerns of potential suitors about the bidding condition, which mandates operating Air India at arm's length for three years.

According to the Daily Mail, a probe has been launched by India's aviation regulator the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board.

The passenger sat next to the window is terrified by the ordeal and is firmly reassured by the flight attendant. The outside window did not break and there was no de-pressursation. The SIA incident of 2014 had happened with the biggest commercial airliner, A-380, which saw so many injuries.

Last week in America a mother of two was killed on a flight from NY to Dallas. All the three injured passengers were taken to the hospital when the flight landed in Delhi.
