    Background: The 26 passengers and crew of an Indian Airlines aircraft hijacked to Pakistan returned to New Delhi by road. They left their aircraft, a Fokker Friendship, in Lahore, Pakistan.

    In New Delhi the passengers and crew were greeted by their friends and families. Groups of Indians demonstrated outside the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi against Pakistan's decision to grant asylum to the hijackers.

    The hijackers of the airliner described themselves as Keshmiri Freedom Fighters. They were demanding the release of 35 people detained in Kashmir allegedly for political activities. Lahore today (Tuesday) reported that the hi-jackers had set fire to the aircraft, destroying it completely.
