ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A PIA plane carrying 113 Pakistanis imprisoned in Malaysia will land at Islamabad airport on Tuesday evening. The special plane with the Pakistanis has left Kuala Lumpur for Islamabad at 2:30pm. In a statement, Special Assistant to Prime Minister for Overseas Pakistanis Zulfi Bukhari said that the welfare of overseas Pakistanis is the top priority of the government. He said that the arrangement of a special plane to bring back the Pakistanis from Malaysia is a good step. In May 2019, a special flight had brought back 320 Pakistanis stranded in Malaysia mainly due to the closure of eastern airspace of Pakistan for foreign airlines. The flight landed at the Islamabad International Airport at 10.10pm, over 45 minutes behind the schedule, as their friends and relatives sitting on the floor waited for the deportees. Some of the Pakistanis brought back to Islamabad on the special flight were detained by the Malysian authorities as their tickets expired after the closure of Pakistan airspace.
