KUALA LUMPUR (INTELLIHUB) — Malaysian Airlines flight MH192, which departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport bound for Bangalore early Monday morning, made an in-air turn-back after a reported right side tire failure, reports say.

The New Straight Times reported:

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the investigation would be made […] He was responding to Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein’s call for the police  to conduct an investigation.

A followup report at 2:20am read:

Banting fire and rescue department officer Malik Hamdan said MH192 landed normal and safely, only one of the landing gears malfunctioned and no foam was sprayed on the tarmac. Passengers have disembarked from plane.

It was originally thought by some that the plane would have to remain airborne until the fuel tanks nearly run dry, aiding in case of a fiery landing.
