DGCA grounds United Airlines plane for damaged engine cover
The aircraft, operating flight UA-48 from Newark to Mumbai, arrived around 10pm on Thursday and the engineers found the right-side engine cowl badly damaged, the sources said. Cowl is the cover of an aircraft engine.

DGCA officials, who inspected the aircraft thereafter, grounded the plane, terming the damage as 'major', the sources said, adding it was being suspected that the damage may have been caused during take-off.

The damage to the aircraft was found after the passengers had disembarked and the plane was being readied for the return flight, they said.
