Notably, this was the second instance in two weeks that an Indian airline had to make an emergency landing at the Karachi airport in Pakistan. 

Last week, SpiceJet’s Delhi-Dubai flight had to be diverted to Karachi after the pilots noticed unusual fuel reduction in one of the fuel tanks of the plane.
