Pakistan-based hijackers hijacked Indian Airlines Flight 814 en route from Kathmandu on December 24, 1999 and diverted it to Amritsar, Lahore, Dubai and finally Kandahar. After a week-long stand-off India agreed to release three jailed Pakistani men in exchange for the hostages. One hostage, Rupin Katyal, was stabbed to death and his body thrown on the tarmac as a "warning attack".
