Imran Khan escapes plane crash as flight makes emergency landing: Local media
Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan escaped a plane crash on Saturday after the plane he was on made an emergency landing after the airplane developed a technical snag soon after it was airborne mid-air.
The pilot landed the plane safely after contacting the control tower for an emergency landing, as per local media reports.
The PTI chairman was travelling from Chaklala to Gujranwala for a rally. Later, he travelled to Gujranwala by road.
The former prime minister in a power-packed rally in Gujranwala addressed his party's Insaf Student Federation (ISF) and the youth and claimed Pakistan's founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah had freed the nation from the slavery of the Britishers but the nation was now plagued with a different type of slavery, according to Dawn news.
Quoting PTI leader Azhar Mashwani, Daily Pakistan reported that Imran Khan's plane returned to Islamabad soon after takeoff due to bad weather.
"Reports of any technical fault in the aircraft are incorrect," the PTI leader tweeted.
