On 24 February at approximately 1740 local time, Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight BG147 made an emergency landing at Chittagong Shah Amanat International Airport (VGEG/CGP) after a man armed with a pistol threatened to blow up the aircraft and attempted to enter the cockpit. Upon arrival, Bangladeshi security forces surrounded the aircraft on the tarmac and all 134 passengers and 14 crew members were safely evacuated. The hijacker was shot and killed when security forces stormed the aircraft at approximately 1920 local time. The assailant was found to be carrying a toy pistol and had no explosives. Officials later announced that the suspect cited his marital troubles as the motive for the attempted hijacking.
