On December 24, 1999, Indian Airlines Flight 814, commonly known as IC 814, in route from Kathmandu to Delhi, was hijacked by 5 terrorists and diverted to Kandahar in Afghanistan. One week later, 1999, Masood Azhar, a top commander of Pakistan-based Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM), was released in exchange for over 150 hostages.
