The pilot was making an emergency landing after the plane developed mechanical problems.

The plane hit houses in and burst into flames damaging ten of houses and several vehicles torched.

Two people died from the ensuing explosion while two others were transported to the hospital after suffering burns.

In May 2020, dozens of people died after a Pakistan International Airlines plane with 99 passengers and 8 crew crashed in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi.

The flight PK 8303, was flying from Lahore to Karachi at a time when Pakistan had just resumed domestic flights in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to an eye witness, the 15-year-old Airbus A320 first hit a mobile tower before crushing over houses just a few kilometres from the airport.

Confirming the incident, the state carrier’s spokesman Abdullah H. Khan said that they last heard from the pilot complaining of a technical hitch.

“The last we heard from the pilot was that he has some technical problem. He was told from the final approach that both the runways were ready where he can land, but the pilot decided that he wanted to do (a) go-round. It is a very tragic incident,” Khan said.
