LAHORE: A private jet carrying leading Pakistani businessman Mian Mohammad Mansha on Tuesday escaped an accident while flying from Lahore to Turkey.

Mansha is a business magnate and billionaire. He is the founder and CEO of the Lahore-based international conglomerate Nishat Group. Sources within the Civil Aviation Authority said that Mansha was travelling to Ankara to join Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in Turkey when his plane, Nishat-1, indicated a technical fault as soon as it entered the limits of Afghanistan.

However, the pilot flew the plane back to Lahore in a timely action, where the fault was fixed, the sources said. Later, Mansha travelled to Turkey in the same plane. Sources said that Mansha is representing a business delegation from Pakistan comprising leading companies across various sectors in Turkey. He has established Saleem Memorial Trust Hospital in Lahore which was recently inaugurated by PM Shehbaz Sharif.
