PIA air hostess who mysteriously disappeared seeks asylum in Canada
LAHORE – Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) air hostess, who mysteriously disappeared in Canada’s city Toronto last Thursday, has reportedly sought asylum there, local media reported.

According to a PIA spokesperson, national flag carrier’s air hostess Fareeha Mukhtar boarded the PIA flight PK-789 from Lahore but as soon as it landed in Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, the crew member disappeared mysteriously and never boarded the return flight.

Mukhtar was supposed to return to Lahore on PIA’s PK-782 flight on the very day but never boarded the plane despite leaving for the same with her colleagues.

“A missing report has been lodged with the Canadian police and an investigation is underway regarding the air hostess’ disappearance,” the spokesperson added.

The airline has issued a show-cause notice in her name and is planning to initiate a disciplinary action against Fareeha Mukhtar, added the spokesperson.
