Not all the luggage from the aircraft, which had been carried from its previous flight to Singapore, was offloaded before the plane took off for India. Consequently, the aircraft returned to Changi Airport to rectify the situation, Reported TOI.
IndiGo has released a statement addressing the baggage-related issue on Flight 6E1006, originating from Singapore to Bengaluru.
The airline acknowledged the error, attributing it to a service partner at Singapore Airport, which necessitated the flight’s return to its point of origin. Passengers were informed of the delay and provided with refreshments.

Landed back in Singapore because of mixed-up baggage from various flights! Passengers on an early morning flight, already sleep-deprived, are being harassed.”
