A small private Indian jet with 10 people on board, made an emergency landing in the southern Pakistani port city of Karachi on Tuesday after developing technical problems, officials said.

The 10 persons in the aircraft, including three crew members, remained safe during the emergency landing.

"The aircraft, which was flying from Dubai to Delhi, developed a problem with its hydraulic system and landed in Karachi," Civil Aviation Authority spokesman Pervez George told PTI.
