Pakistan International Airlines crew took 34 Indian passengers to a local hotel in Lahore despite them not having the relevant visas.
According to initial reports from FIA, the Indian passengers from New Delhi were flying to Saudi Arabia with a stopover in Pakistan.
The PIA crew took the passengers to the hotel, bypassing FIA check points inside the airport. The passengers reportedly spent a night at the hotel.
The FIA has compiled a report on this issue and will submit it to the concerned authorities.
As per the law, transit passengers should remain within a designated area usually inside the airport.
