According to latest reports:

PIA engineers are replacing four deflated/burst tyres of the Boeing 777. The replacement tyres came from Karachi.

The aircraft will depart after getting its engine repaired.

Probably takeoff aborted due to some problem with engine?

According to PIA spokesperson:

Due to lesser seating capacity of substitute Boeing 777 i.e. Boeing 777-200LR registration AP-BGY, around eighty passengers of flight PK-2057 have been adjusted in another flight that will depart on the morning of August 9.

Repairs work on the Boeing 777 that aborted takeoff i.e. Boeing 777-300ER registration AP-BID has begun and the aircraft is expected to return to service tomorrow.

According to the following photo shared on Plane Spotters Pakistan Forum Facebook group, AP-BID was undergoing an engine replacement.

"Most probably, the engine was transported to Lahore using PAF C130."
