Rat aboard Air India flight causes plane to turn back.

A plane heading from Mumbai to London was forced to return midflight after a rat was spotted on board, reports said.

Air India flight AI-131 was flying over Tehran when a passenger saw the rodent running around the cabin, the Times of India reported on Thursday.

The pilot turned the plane back to Mumbai as a “precautionary measure” in case the rat had gnawed through any electrical wiring or aircraft controls.
