Despite no aviation agreement, why Indian airlines are making emergency landing in Pakistan?

On July 17, a Sharjah-Hyderabad IndiGo flight made an emergency landing in Pakistan’s Jinnah International Airport in Karachi. The pilot of the flight 6E-1406 observed a technical defect in the aircraft and as a precaution the aircraft was diverted to Karachi, Pakistan. An additional flight has been sent to Karachi to fly the passengers to Hyderabad. A few days earlier, a SpiceJet flight SG11 made an emergency landing at Karachi airport. The Delhi to Dubai international flight suffered a technical fault and made the landing at the Pakistan’s Karachi airport on July 5. A flight ferried the passengers to Dubai later in the day.
