The pilot returned to Visakhapatnam and flew in a pattern around the city to burn up as much fuel as possible and landed back at the airport safely.

After all the safety checks were carried out, the flight resumed its journey, but not before a delay of one-and-a-half hours, the airline said. The incident occurred at around 10 p.m. on Sunday when the wild boar ran into the flight path, hitting a rear wheel.

Vizag: IndiGo Plane carrying 150 passengers was bound for Hyderabad had a narrow escape after a wild boar nearly collided with the aircraft that was taking off. IndiGo officials confirmed that the pilot saw the boar, but it was too late to abort take-off.

In a statement, IndiGo said it has filed a "writ petition (along with an interim application for injunction/stay) in the Delhi High Court, challenging DIALs decision to shift a part of our operations from T1 to T2 of Indira Gandhi International Airport Delhi".

IndiGo officials confirmed in a statement after the incident that although the pilot saw the animal approaching the runway, it was too late to abort the take-off.

But the pilot could not land the flight immediately, as the rear wheel was damaged in the run-in and failed to retract. The captain immediately reported the matter to ATC and made a decision to hold over Vizag.

The airlines also said, even though the flight was delayed they ensured customer safety at all times.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) on Monday blamed budget carrier IndiGo for negligence that caused injuries to a passenger who fell off her wheelchair while being assisted by the airline's staff at Lucknow airport.
