All eight crew members on board and another three persons on the ground were killed in the crash. The Russian-made Il-76 aircraft, which was heading to Sudanese capital Khartoum, was crashed after taking off from Karachi airport.
The plane crashed to a building under construction at a navy housing complex which increased the death toll. Around 20 houses were destroyed.
"I saw one of its wings was burning and there was a blast and the fire engulfed the aircraft very quickly," Riaz Ahmed, a local resident, said.
