A loading truck collided with a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) aircraft at Kuwait airport on Saturday causing severe damage to its engine, Express News reported.

Flight PK 240 was about to leave for Sialkot when the incident occurred. No casualties were reported in the incident.

Earlier this month, in another bizarre incident, a PIA employee ran amok with a catering pick-up van on the runway of Karachi airport for half an hour. He was detained by the Airport Security Force (ASF) but by then, he had caused two other vehicles to collide with each other and had injured an official.

PIA, however, denied the incident and said that a collision took place only between the vigilance vehicle and an ASF car.

ET has an agenda to defame and degrade Pakistan and its institutions in every bit of the news. It seems it is more like a Western/ Indian news paper.
