Junaid Jamshed became a victim of a tragic plane crash of PIA ATR PK661. He went to Chitral for preaching along with some of his companions. After completing the preaching, he wanted to return to Islamabad. And for that he booked a ticket in PIA ATR PK 661. According to sources, this plane had some technical issues and was not fit for flight.
The chairman of PIA, Muhammad Azam Saigol, however defended the allegations. He said that the aircraft went through A checking one month before and was declared fit for the operations. Azam further added that the criticism is based on false allegations. He said with full belief that an independent inquiry will be held to know what actually went wrong. Inquiry will also include international companies to make it more transparent.
