Afghanistan's Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal on Thursday claimed that his luggage had been misplaced by Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) twice this week as he travelled from Islamabad to Kabul.
Expressing his annoyance in a tweet, Zakhilwal said: "Second time in a row in a week my suitcase goes missing on Islamabad-Kabul PIA flight and then ends up in UK. Could it be just coincidental mismanagement?"
PIA spokesperson Mashood Tajwar said that a complaint has been lodged by the passenger and the matter is being investigated.
Later in the day, Tajwar told Dawn.com that the missing suitcase has been located and will be delivered to the Afghan envoy in Kabul tomorrow.
The PIA official said that Zakhilwal's suitcase was wrongly checked into PK-791 flight for Birmingham, which departs nearly half-an-hour ahead of the PIA's flight for Kabul, which the Afghan envoy was to board.
