The Air Traffic Controller (ATC) in Mumbai refused landing on humanitarian ground of a Saudia Airlines flight from Bangladesh in the port city after a Bangladesh passengers health worsened mid-flight on Tuesday, The News International, a Pakistani daily reports.

The  flight later landed in Karachi.

The Riyadh-bound flight, SV 805, departed from Bangladeshi capital city, Dhaka, at 3:57am and was in the Indian airspace when the 44-year-old Bangladeshi passenger fell sick during the flight, according to airline sources.

Abu Tahir, the Bengali passenger, was in a bad condition with high blood pressure, and was continuously vomiting due to his health,” the report said.

It said, considering the passengers health, the pilot diverted the aircraft towards Mumbai and sought permission from the Air Traffic Controller in Mumbai for landing on humanitarian ground.

By the time the air traffic controller could issue permission, the plane had taken the landing approach towards Mumbai. The ATC then sought to know the nationality and other details of the affected passenger and refused to let the Bangladeshi Muslim passenger offload.

After receiving instructions from the Mumbai ATC, the pilot sought Karachi Air Traffic Controller for permission to land a flight in the port city after which the aircraft was flown towards Karachi and touched down at the Jinnah International Airport at 7:28am.

The Civil Aviation Authoritys (CAA) medical team took emergency measures at the airport with doctors arriving to treat the patient as soon as the plane landed.

The Bengali passenger on board the plane was examined by the doctor present at the spot who provided medical aid to him. Following the check-up, the plane flew to Riyadh from Karachi, the report said.

The Bangladesh Foreign Ministry has yet to make any comment on the issue; it did not respond to the incident.
