Heavy turbulence during an Air India flight to Delhi last week caused a window panel inside the plane to fall off and left three passengers injured, The Times of India news website reported.

A 35-second video clip, purportedly shot inside the flight AI 462, has surfaced on Sunday, three days after the April 19 turbulence.

Dramatic footage contained in the aircraft exhibits an air hostess trying to fix the broken window panel in entrance of scared passengers.

An Air India spokesperson said the flight, operating on the Amritsar-Delhi sector, faced severe turbulence because of bad weather during climb.

According to the Daily Mail, a probe has been launched by India's aviation regulator the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Board.

The flight was completely full and was travelling between Amritsar to Delhi - a journey that would ordinarily take around 30 minutes.

The flight was carried out by the Boeing 787, which has been in operation for six years.

According to NDTV, the Dreamliner is also fitted with a state-of-the-art turbulence dampening system which is created to counteract the effects of instability during a flight.

A passenger on a recent Air India flight learned this the hard way (quite literally) when her window panel popped out of its frame and knocked her "upside the head" while the aircraft was at 15,000 feet. The outside part of the window, however, was not broken and no de-pressurisation occurred during the flight. "Meteorological reports are being collected".

A senior Air India official told The Times of India, "This was a freak high level turbulence".

In October 2014, a Singapore Airlines Airbus A-380 encountered a similar situation while descending to land at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

NTSB investigators examine the wreckage of the engine on the Southwest Airlines plane that exploded mid flight.

She then tried to console the passenger while three other passengers were reportedly being treated for minor injuries.
