WASHINGTON: Over 31 years after the hijacking of a Pan Am plane in Pakistan, the FBI has released new age-progressed images of four wanted suspects in the deadly incident that left 20 people, including Indian flight attendant Neerja Bhanot, dead.
Chandigarh-born Bhanot was the senior flight purser on Pan Am Flight 73 hijacked in Karachi in 1986. She was killed while helping passengers to escape through emergency exits when hijackers opened fire and set off explosives during the 16-hour ordeal.
Using new age-progression technology, FBI technicians created new photos of four alleged Pan Am Flight 73 hijackers.
The bureau hopes the updated images — rendered using Adobe’s Photoshop programme to show what the men might look like now — will generate new leads and encourage anyone with information to contact the FBI directly
