PIA ‘misplaces’ Afghan envoy’s luggage twice in one week


Afghanistan’s Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal claimed on Thursday that his luggage had been misplaced by the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) twice in a week when he travelled from Islamabad to Kabul.

Taking to Twitter to express his annoyance, Zakhilwal said, “Second time in a row in a week my suitcase goes missing on Islamabad-Kabul PIA flight and then ends up in UK. Could it be just coincidental mismanagement?”

Although the Afghan envoy mentioned Pakistan’s national carrier in his tweet, the PIA did not reply to Zakhilwal on the social networking platform despite being known to respond to the queries on time.

Reacting to the matter, PIA spokesperson Mashood Tajwar said that a complaint has been lodged by the passenger and the matter is being investigated.
