Indian Paramilitary plane crashes in Delhi shortly after takeoff
NEW DELHI — A small Indian paramilitary plane crashed just outside New Delhi's main airport on Tuesday, killing all 10 people on board, officials said.
A spokesman for the border force said rescue operations were under way and he couldn't provide casualty figures. He said an investigation into the cause of the crash was under way.
The plane, a Beechcraft Super King Air B-200, went down in southwest Delhi at about 10 a.m. local time, the BSF said.
A tweet on the official account of India’s home minister, Rajnath Singh, said news of the crash was “extremely painful.”
At least 15 fire engines were at the site of the crash trying to extricate the wreckage.
The plane was heading from New Delhi to the eastern city of Ranchi. It was carrying eight engineers and two pilots.
