An Airbus A320 was damaged in a runway excursion accident at Cochin International Airport (COK), India. Seven passengers were injured.
Gulf Air Flight GF270 operated on flight from Bahrain International Airport (BAH) to Cochin. Visibility at Cochin was limited to about 2000 m in rain. There were scattered clouds at 800 feet and 1500 feet. An ILS approach to runway 09 was flown by the captain. He disengaged the autopilot at 670 feet.
Passing 200 feet the aircraft was banking to the right and the drift angle of 4° left progressively started reducing. A side slip condition to the right was initiated which led to a deviation from the runway axis. The right wheel touched down 25 m from the runway centre line on the hard shoulder. The A320 went off the runway pavement onto the soft shoulders and came to a halt at 1235 m from the threshold. The nose gear collapsed as the airplane came to rest in the grass.

Probable Cause:

Cause: "The Runway Excursion was caused due to an error of judgment of the PIC during which was due to loss of situational awareness during reduced visibility conditions."
