Air India flight makes emergency landing in Pakistan

Mumbai :  An Air India flight bound for New Delhi from Abu Dhabi with 122 passengers and six crew members made an emergency landing in Pakistan early Monday due to what is being called a technical fault. All on board were reported safe.

The carrier said a relief aircraft would be sent to Nawabshah airport in Pakistan's Sindh province to bring those on board back by afternoon. 

The Abu Dhabi-New Delhi flight AI-940, which originated from Bahrain, was forced to make the landing after a hydraulic failure warning, an airline official said.

As a precautionary measure, the flight -- scheduled to arrive at 5.15 a.m. in Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport -- made the landing at the Pakistani airport, the official added.

"All passengers and crew members are safe. There is no cause for worry."

A technical team, which will also go on the rescue flight, will investigate the causes that resulted in the hydraulic warning getting activated in the aircraft.
