The airplane was diverted and an uneventful single engine landing was made at Mumbai International Airport, India. No injuries were reported to the passengers or crew members on board. After landing, the airplane was stopped on the taxiway for fire crew to inspect. The airplane was cleared to the bay where passengers deplaned. During a preliminary visual inspection ground crew noted burn marks on the right hand engine thrust reverser cowl. Paint blistering was identified on both halves of the engine thrust reverser cowls near the lower pressure relief doors and ‘sooting’ was seen on engine components. The fuel line to the right Variable Bleed Valve (VBV) actuator was separated at the weld providing a path for fuel to leak.
Probable cause: "Separation of the VBV actuator fuel supply line outside the 'shroud can' to the VBV actuator extend port was caused by high N2 vibrations during flight resulting from damage to HPT."
