NEW DELHI : An Air India plane with 160 passengers was forced to return to New Delhi almost 30 minutes into a Milan-bound flight after smoke was detected in the cabin Tuesday, the airline said.

"It was a precautionary landing after the cabin crew was alerted about minor smoke in the cabin almost half an hour after the plane left New Delhi airport on Tuesday afternoon," Air India spokesman G.P Rao told AFP.

"All 160 passengers are safe and have been transferred to another flight. The cause of the smoke in the grounded plane will now be investigated."

Last month a London-bound flight with over 200 passengers was forced to return to Mumbai after three hours in the air over a suspected rat sighting in the cabin.  

Earlier last year a Milan-bound flight returned to Delhi over another suspected rat sighting.
