A Cathay Pacific B777-200 aircraft, registered as VR-HND, arrived from Bangkok. After it had touched down, the pilot found out that the Fire Alarm Alert System of the Forward Freight is ON. Pilot then asked all the passengers to leave the cabin immediately. A number of passengers were injured when they escaped out of the aircraft.
