A Buddha Air Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A, registration 9N-AJS performing flight U4-952 from Bhadrapur to Kathmandu (Nepal) with 68 passengers and 4 crew, was enroute near Biratnagar (Nepal) when the crew received excessive ITT temperatures for the left hand engine and decided to divert to Biratnagar for a safe landing.

The airline confirmed the crew received unrealistic InterTurbineTemperature (ITT) readings while all other engine parameters remained normal suggesting that this was an indication problem rather than an engine core problem. The flight landed safely, maintenance staff were dispatched to Biratnagar. Later the airline added the aircraft returned to service.
