An aircraft gifted by the Indian Air Force (IAF) to Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in 2009, installed in the campus was listed online for sale on OLX at a price of Rs 9.99 crore on Monday.

However, the post was removed soon after the incident came to light.

Later university authorities have clarified that the post on the website was fake and is an attempt to defame the institution.

The aircraft installed at the university as a symbol of IAF outside the AMU’s engineering department in 2009 was listed on OLX for sale for Rs 999,99,999 on Monday.

The MiCO MiG-23BN fighter plane was retired after being in the Indian Air Force for nearly 28 years.
