Union Minister Nitin Gadkari was among the passengers on an IndiGo flight that did not take-off this morning because of a "serious error" detected by the pilot.
The IndiGo flight 6E 636 from Nagpur to Delhi was moments from take-off when the pilot was alerted about an error.
 
The pilot aborted take-off and the plane returned from the runway to the taxiway.
 
Passengers, including Nitin Gadkari, the Road Transport Minister, were de-boarded. Passengers are currently waiting at the Nagpur airport, an airport official said.
 
The Nagpur airport's senior director Vijay Mulekar said the flight to Delhi did not take off due to a "technical fault". 
 
Mr Gadkari is the Lok Sabha MP from Nagpur.
