Four students from the Government Arts College of Lucknow hijacked an Indian Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft during a flight from Lucknow (LKO) to Delhi (DEL). The students claimed to have explosives strapped to their bodies. Their demands included the addition of new courses to the school's curriculum, withdrawal
of an award given to a former professor, and postponement of annual exams because the university had been closed during the riots of December 1992.
The aircraft, with 53 passengers and six crew members, returned to Amausi Airport in Lucknow. Upon landing, four passengers overpowered the students, who were then arrested by police. One passenger was injured. The only weapon found was a small knife.
