BSF plane crash: PM expresses pain

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

Aviation sources said the accident happened at around 9.50 AM when the twin-engine Superking plane crashed into the airport boundary wall near a railway track and landed in a sewage treatment plant while returning to Ranchi apparently due to a technical problem five minutes after it took off.

BSF sources said the technicians were on their way to Ranchi to repair a helicopter.
