New Delhi: The Air Force, Army and Navy continue to search for the missing AN-32 that went off radar shortly after taking off on Monday. On Friday morning, P-8I of Indian Navy undertook a search mission from Arakonnam.

According to Indian Air Force (IAF), the helicopters, transport aircraft, UAVs and other sensors are involved in extensive search and rescue whenever weather is permitting. “The search area continues to expand to look at all possibilities. All electronic, radar, optical and infrared sensors including satellites are being employed to scan the area for any probable clues,” the IAF said. It added that Indian Army, Police, state gover-nment, paramilitary forces and local population are lending crucial support in search operations. Army search parties have been in the area for over two days, going through thick forest trying to locate the aircraft.
