Lahore: PIA steward tortures woman, snatches camera
LAHORE: A PIA steward severely tortured a Pakistani-British woman in the aircraft and snatched her camera and other valuable goods.
Other passengers protested at the attitude of the staff and raised slogans against the airline. Flight PK 302 landed two hours late from Karachi here on Tuesday but parked at the international jetty because of a mistake of the airport staff.
The passengers stood on their seats and protested when the doors were not opened for an hour. A British-Pakistani lady passenger Irum Nadeem photographed the protest, which infuriated a steward Siraj who slapped her on her face and snatched her camera and other valuable goods. This led to agitation by other passengers.
Later, the doors of the aircraft were opened but the passengers were surrounded by ASF staff and Deputy Station Manager of PIA Tariq Majeed who also mistreated the passengers. As a result the passengers refused to get out of the aircraft.
Later when they came out, they wrote complaint on the register of the Civil Aviation Authority. The PIA airport authorities when contacted said that a probe into the incident is going on and they would not comment before time.
