KARACHI: A Delhi-bound Indian plane on Tuesday made an emergency landing at the Jinnah International Airport, Karachi owing to a medical emergency with a passenger onboard, ARY NEWS reported.

According to details, the passenger plane-GOW-6658- was traveling from Riyadh in Saudi Arabia to New Delhi in India when it made an emergency landing at the Karachi airport after the health condition of a traveler, Mohammad Naushad, deteriorated.

The doctors reached the plane soon after it landed on Pakistani soil and pronounced the death of the passenger after his medical examination.


Detailing the entire episode, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) spokesman said that a GoAir flight sought permission for an emergency landing at the Jinnah International Airport Karachi after the health condition of one of the travelers deteriorated on the flight.

“We allowed the plane to land on a humanitarian basis,” he said adding that the doctors pronounced him dead after carrying out his medical examination.

According to sources, the Indian plane later left the Karachi airport after the refueling process and also took the body of the passenger, Muhammad Naushad. A total of 179 passengers were on board the flight.

This is not the first time that a plane had made an emergency landing on Pakistani soil owing to a medical emergency.
In July this year, a Qatar Airways cargo flight from Doha has made an emergency landing at the Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, after a Bangladesh national developed a health issue on board.

According to details, a Qatar Airways cargo flight QR-3244 from Doha was scheduled to land at Dhaka airport, Bangladesh but the passenger’s deteriorating condition forced it to make an emergency landing at the Lahore airport.

The Bangladeshi national identified as Ameen-ul-Haq was shifted to National Hospital DHA for medical aid.

Indian planes unintentionally landing in Pakistan pose a grave diplomatic and security challenge .
Indian planes are packed with 90% of the passengers of Indian nationality, Any mishap such as a botched emergency landing and crash would result in India pointing to "criminal negligence " and "heartless action " by Pakistan. It will be a good stick for India to beat Pakistan up with. Pakistan should not allow its airspace for transit by Indian planes.

This is ridiculous

Plane should have been shot down not allowed to land and off load a potential a RAW agent into Karachi.

relax guys, it was a medical emergency not a Bollywood movie. Our values and ethics teach us to be compasionate towards the sick, elderly, woman and children. As far as the security situation is concerned, I am sure the competent authorities made sure that all necessary SOP were followed. RIP the passenger who couldn't make it home and condolences to the family.

Anyone who went on board that plane must be quarantined. That said, if India is hellbent on bio-terrorism, that plane could have released bio-agents while on the ground. Given the current situation with global bio-security, this was a non-ideal handling of the situation.
