原文标题：Nepal plane crash: 11 Indians among 15 dead
KATHMANDU: Eleven Indian pilgrims were among 15 people killed when a private plane crashed in Nepal today after hitting a hill top while trying to land at high-altitude Jomsom airport.
“Eleven Indian nationals, two Danish nationals and two Nepalese crew member were killed in the crash,” the official said, adding rescuers have so far recovered nine bodies from the wreckage. Six people on board, including a crew member and five Indians, have been rescued alive from the crash site, he said.
The Agni Air plane was about to land at Jomsom airport when it dropped from air. “The accident happened less than one mile from the airport,” Purusottam Shakya of the air traffic control said.
Jomsom is the gateway to Muktinath temple, a popular pilgrimage for Nepali and Indians. The temple is about six hours walk from Jomsom.
The high-altitude Jomsom airport, about 200 km northwest of the capital, is a gateway to a popular tourism and trekking destination situated more than 2,600 m above sea level.
This is sad. Rest in Peace and I hope the survivors recover very soon.
may the deceased rest in peace..

To Parmatma & Public, Dear Friends, i am an Indian and residing in Australia for the past 8 years . When i was in India i never heard of such differences between people of any caste or religion from north, south, east or west.We are all indians so why has this hatred germinated between fellow indians – can anyone explain????

Very sad news! but where are those hate comments?The same thing happend around two months back in another neighbour country and people started commenting “Good Some terrorist wiped out”, “Good it happend because all were muslims” etc etc etc. Have some sense my friends. Tragedy is a tragedy it can happen to anybody at any time. Please do not be happy if muslims are invlolved. I am a proud muslim of India but it hurts when my fellow indian points everything towards muslims. Blame Pakistan but do not blame muslims that is what i want to say. Once again it’s a very sad tragedy and loss of innocent human lives.

you are right about chinese coming to Nepal but missed one point that they are far-sighted and it’s midpoint of their final destination perhaps you got it right.

The Exact cause of the crash shall be determined so that passengers in future can travel to these Picturesque locations safely in future.

These days, airplane crashes are as common as roadside accidents it appears. Either the planes used have been recycled from richer countries/airlines or the pilots and staff are really poorly trained. Either way, innocent lives are lost and this should be taken very seriously and stopped.

I recently came back from a vacation in Nepal. I have to say one thing- all domestic flights in Nepal are dilapidated and beyond repair. Being a mountainous country air flight is the only fast means of transport. For example pokhara to Katmandu is about 140km and by road it takes 6 hours with bumpy travel and by flight it takes just 25 mts. My question it to govt of india- Please open your eyes- every year Indians are dying in Nepal. Nepal govt may not be interested in flight safety because 99% of the domestic air passengers are foreign tourists and among them 95% are Indians. Govt of india have to declare it unsafe to travel in nepali airlines and then we can see them hurrying to replace the planes with better ones.
