A Delhi-bound flight from Udaipur made an emergency landing after a passenger's phone exploded.

The phone exploded soon after departure, creating smoke on the plane. After smoke was detected, pilots decided to make an emergency landing back in Udaipur, media reports have said.

After inspections and checks were made and it was considered safe to fly, the plane departed once again from the city in Rajasthan.

Last week a small flight crashed in the US, where a passenger took control of the plane and crash landed safely.
