A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Abu Dhabi in the UAE to Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan landed at the Lahore airport reportedly due low visibility, Geo News reported.
The airline staffers offered to take the passengers to their desired destination by a bus. However, the passengers turned down the offer and refused to leave the plane.
Following this, the airline staffers switched off the plane's air conditioning system, resulting in suffocation of passengers, including minors, in the plane.
The passengers said that they had asked the airlines to drop them at Multan Airport which is 292 kilometres away from Rahim Yar Khan.
