KUALA LUMPUR: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has brought Pakistan into disrepute around the world as the Malaysian government seized a PIA plane, leaving the crew stranded.
According to media reports, the Boeing 777 of the national airline (PIA) has been seized by the Malaysian government. The incident took place in Kuala Lumpur. Because of this, Pakistan’s jug is being ridiculed all over the world.
It is reported that PIA flight PK flew from Karachi to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia today. The court had ordered his arrest as he had not yet been paid by the PIA.
A large number of Pakistani passengers were on board the plane at the time. First, the passengers were disembarked from the plane, after which the Malaysian authorities seized the plane and grounded it. In this situation, the PIA crew that went to Malaysia with the plane is also trapped. Now they will have to go through isolation from the global epidemic.
A spokesman for the national airline (PIA) also confirmed the news of the hijacking. He said that until the matter is resolved, full attention will be paid to the passengers and crew.
He said that efforts were being made at the government level to resolve the issue but it was a very unfortunate incident. On the other hand, there are reports that PIA had leased the aircraft from Vietnam in 2015 but its dues have not been paid yet.
