Bahrain Airlines also grounded Pakistani pilots when a fake license scandal came to light.
The Bahrain CAA has written a letter to the Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan (CAA) asking it to verify and investigate the pilot’s license.
The letter from Bahrain CAA said that the licenses of pilot Chaudhry Ghafoor Saqib, pilot Muhammad Mubashir Khan and Malik Imran Altaf should be verified.
The letter further said that the licenses of five Pakistani engineers should also be verified and a report should be submitted. The flight engineers include Javed Iqbal Malik, Mohammad Junaid Khan, Danish Afzal, Irfan Feroze and Mohammad Shahid Amron.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Bahrain has directed Pakistan to immediately investigate and provide a report.
On the other hand, DG Civil Aviation Pakistan has started an investigation into the three pilots and five engineers.
