During landing on runway 07 at Madras airport, the right landing gear attachment failed and right engine contacting runway surface immediately on touch down. The aircraft started swerving towards the right of runway center line.

The fire emanating from the right engine was extinguished and the crew and passengers evacuated the aircraft through the left side exit doors by means of the slide chutes.
