All 48 people on board a PIA plane, including famous pop singer-turned-Islamic preacher Junaid Jamshed and three foreigners, were feared dead on Tuesday as the aircraft crashed and burst into flames in a hilly area near Pakistan's Abbottabad after facing engine problems.
The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane PK-661 with 48 people, including Jamshed, his wife and Deputy Commissioner Chitral Osama Warraich, on board crashed in Saddha Batolni village near Pakistan Ordinance Factory, Havelian, while en route to Islamabad from Chitral in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
The national carrier's flight departed from Chitral around 3.30pm and was expected to land at Islamabad's Benazir Bhutto International Airport at around 4.40pm.
So far 21 dead bodies have been retrieved from the crash site, according to the army.
Its not right to post shameful stupid comments full of hatred in tragedy such as this one. No loss is bigger than loss of life. Refrain from posting any comment but prayers and do not bring religion, country or nationality in between. Prayers for the dead, may they rest in peace.
The RICH guy who died in this incident was a billionaire but only take £800/month for his home expense the rest he was donating toward poor people .. .
He didn''t become a billionnaire doing good and legal things.
At a time of tragedy, a person who only thinks of hatred isn''t much of a human being. And a person who isn''t much of a human being isn''t much of an Indian.
they celebrates our death.
it must be reciprocated
Some Indians are very happy for this accident but these people are worse then ANIMALS.
Some an aims on pak side as well.
But that is life.
Some Indians good some bad
Some pakistains good some bad
48 terror!sts less

After watching below full of hated comments on PIA plane crash, I got logic why Indian nation is declared as world 2nd uncivilized nation, why fascifascist and a criminal man elected is as Prime minister of India, I am very sorry to say animals are much better then Indians.
