NEW DELHI: A Ranchi-bound Border Security Force charter flight crashed near Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi on Tuesday morning, killing all the 10 people on board.
News agency PTI, citing BSF sources, said the flight was carrying paramilitary technicians. According to initial reports, the flight hit a wall at Badpola village in Dwarka, about 5 km from the Delhi airport, as soon as it took off.
"Two dead bodies have been recovered from the crash site. We are looking for more," Joint Commissioner of Police (South West Delhi) Deepender Pathak told PTI.
Home minister Rajnath Singh is expected to visit the crash site in Dwarka shortly. "The tragic news of BSF plane crash near IGI airport in New Delhi is extremely painful. Rushing to the crash site immediately," he tweeted.
The civil aviation ministry has ordered an inquiry into the crash.
The real investigation should be why the plane was allowed to take off in foggy condition
What is state of remaining 8 passengers
Black Box recorder needs to be recovered for this and investigated
Seems everyone on board got killed. Our heartfelt condolences to the family members of our Brave BSF Personnel!!
Such incident can only happen in India. Such a mess all-round

If it is a terrorist strike, then it is a global problem.
human error ?
pilot negligence is clear
Most Indian readers always make sweeping statements and jump to instant conclusions. An aircraft is one of the most complex and sophisticated machines and finding the cause of an air crash involves indepth investigation and expertise
It seem that we are not maitaining planes,helicopters,fighter planes etc.very often they crash.
human error caused this ??
the price we pay for corruption by politicians who opt for cheap defence equipments...tragic! My deep condolences to the departed.
