New Delhi: The bodies of all the ten paramilitary personnel who were killed in a plane crash on Tuesday, have been sent for post-mortem at the Safdarjung Hospital, police officials at the crash site said.

While three bodies were found just outside a water tank in a completely charred condition, the rest were pulled out of the water tank, they said.

 

All the 10 people on board a small Ranchi-bound BSF plane carrying technical personnel were killed when it crashed near Dwarka this morning and burst into flames just outside the IGI airport here shortly after take-off.

The ill-fated twin-engine Superking plane took a turn after taking off at around 9.37 AM and hit a tree while apparently approaching to land following a possible technical problem, according to officials from the ATC and DGCA.

"It then crash landed hitting the periphery of the airport, then dragged on smashing through a portion of the boundary wall," they said.

 

Small pieces of the wreckage of the fuselage are currently being salvaged by a team of police, disaster management and other officials, they said.

Immediately after the crash took place, a large contingent from the police and personnel from civil defence was pressed into service.

A team of CISF personnel and disaster management as well as officials from Air Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) and Directorate General of Civil Aviation also rushed to accident site, they said.
