The F-27 Friendship was hijacked on January 30 while flying over Nagrota, India. Two hijackers entered the cockpit, armed with a revolver and a grenade. The Friendship, with 32 on board, was diverted to Lahore, Pakistan.
The hijackers were members of the Jammu and Kashmir National Liberation Front (NLF).
Three days later, both hijackers set the plane afire.
