An 11-seater plane carrying 10 BSF officers, including seven technicians, crashed near Dwarka in Delhi at 9.40 am Tuesday, killing everyone on board. Officials said a technical snag in the plane prompted the pilot to turn back towards the airport after taking off, but the plane hit a tree and crashed.
The plane was taking technicians from Palam Airport to Ranchi to repair a Mi-17 V5 helicopter stationed there. The plane had been inducted into the force in 1995. It was the same plane which ferried officials for the recently concluded conference of DGs in Rann of Kutch.
Our prayers and thoughts goes for the families of the deceased. And may the loved ones rest in peace.
