This is not the first time that Pakistan has allowed an Indian plane to make an emergency landing in Karachi.

In November last year, an Indian plane flying from Saudi Arabia made an emergency landing in the metropolis as a passenger aboard the flight died of a heart attack.

The private Indian airline’s jet was flying from Riyadh to Delhi when it had to make an emergency landing at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport (KHI).

An Indian passenger, Muhammad Nowshad, fell ill on GoAir flight GOW 6658 as the jet flew from Riyadh to Delhi.

As the plane touched the ground, a doctor at the airport was requested to attend to him, but the man died before he could be administered medical aid.
