Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Peshawar offloaded all passengers onboard Shaheen Airline flight NL- 786 at Bacha Khan International Airport (BKIA) Peshawar after officials received intelligence information about a bomb imagined to be planted in the passenger airplane.
Officials told The Express Tribune that the airline was bound to leave for Dubai when officials received information in regards to a suspected bomb. Soon after, teams searched the aircraft and offloaded all the passengers.
The passengers were not unlikely to be questioned, the official told.
