Indian Airlines flight 266 to Calcutta was forced to fly two holdings due to poor weather at Calcutta Airport.
During the ILS approach the captain reported runway in sight 90 seconds prior to touchdown and the aircraft was cleared to land. The controller cautioned that the runway was wet. After touchdown the aircraft rolled 1800 feet until it went off the left side of the runway. The aircraft entered kucha ground and the nose landing gear collapsed.

Probable Cause:

The probable cause of the accident has been attributed as:
The Commander could not maintain directional control of the aircraft during landing at night under cross-winds due loss of visual cues on account of heavy rain conditions encountered at the time of touch down.
