Man hijacks plane after threatening to reveal Avengers Endgame and GoT spoilers to the pilot

New Delhi: Armed with the spoilers for Endgame and Game of Thrones, a 32 years old Indian man successfully hijacked a plane at IGI Airport in Delhi last night. The flight has been diverted to a remote airport in Odisha and the man is demanding 50 Crores as ransom amount.

Game of Thrones, the epic fantasy TV show, is in its final season right now and people are desperately waiting to see who eventually ends up on the Iron Throne. Similarly, for Avengers: Endgame, an 11 years long storyline is reaching its climax this month with the release of this film, and people are desperate to avoid spoilers for both.

During past few days, several spoilers for both have flooded social media websites forcing many people to delete their social media accounts to avoid seeing these spoilers. Some have even disconnected their internet connections to stay away from the spoilers. Thousands of Jio Sims were found floating in River Ganga last night.

As per reports, this man (identity withheld for legal reasons) entered this flight from Delhi to Chennai last night and immediately after take-off relayed the threat to the cabin crew. At first, cabin crew didn’t react to it as he didn’t have any spoiler for Naagin 3 but then one of the passengers nearby requested them to alert the pilot. When a cabin crew member was heading to the cockpit to speak to the pilot, this man barged in and made his threat. Looking at the severity of the threat, the pilot agreed to listen to him and gave him the control of the aircraft.

So far, negotiations haven’t started with the hijacker as government is waiting to find a negotiator who is willing to risk listening to these spoilers while negotiating the release of the trapped passengers.
