A report by The Times Of India stated that Adarsh Kumar Singh booked an Air Asia flight from Bengaluru to Lucknow, his hometown.

Adarsh Kumar Singh disembarked from the flight right before takeoff. The cabin crew alerted the CISF officials of the boy’s strange actions.

The CISF personnel interjected and questioned the student about walking out of the flight at the n’th moment. On his part, Adarsh Kumar Singh stated that he was a terrorist and that the flight wouldn’t fly to Lucknow as scheduled. This immediately sparked a domino effect in subsequent events.
