According to the couple's coordinator, Mohsin Ikram, the duo abandoned their journey in the car after reaching Jacobabad. 

The couple loaded the open car on a truck and sent it to Lahore and they will leave for the city on a normal car, said Ikram. Moreover, Lang and Bev will reach India through Wagah Border.
