The carrier said a relief aircraft would be sent to Nawabshah airport in Pakistan's Sindh province to bring those on board back by afternoon. 
The Abu Dhabi-New Delhi flight AI-940, which originated from Bahrain, was forced to make the landing after a hydraulic failure warning, an airline official said.

As a precautionary measure, the flight -- scheduled to arrive at 5.15 a.m. in Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport -- made the landing at the Pakistani airport, the official added.
"All passengers and crew members are safe. There is no cause for worry."
A technical team, which will also go on the rescue flight, will investigate the causes that resulted in the hydraulic warning getting activated in the aircraft.
