A cardiologist tweeted to complain about the situation. “What is the status of QR579 – Delhi-Doha, diverted to Karachi? No information being offered, no food or water being offered to passengers. Customer care is clueless. Please help,” Dr Sameer Gupta tweeted.

In a video message, a passenger, Ramesh Raliya, said many have connecting flights from Doha, but they haven’t got any information about when the aircraft would take-off from Karachi.

The aircraft took off from Delhi at 3:50 am on Monday and landed at Karachi at 5:30 am, Mr Raliya said.

“After landing, they made everyone to deboard and wait at the airport. It’s 9 am now,” the passenger said in the video message. “They haven’t told us when the flight would take off. There are women and children, and many people have to take connecting flights from Doha,” he said.
