Ten Die in Delhi Plane Crash

A light aircraft has crashed on takeoff near the airport in the Indian capital, Delhi, killing 10 people. The Beechcraft King Air plane chartered by India’s Border Security Force came down after hitting a wall in Dwarka district and burst into flames. India’s air safety record has been good in the past few years. The last major crash happened in the city of Mangalore in May 2010, killing at least 160 people, BBC reported. The twin-engine plane was on its way to Ranchi in the eastern state of Jharkhand from Delhi’s international airport when the incident happened. “The crash took place at around 09:50 India time (04:20GMT) moments after the technicians lost contact with ground control,” AK Sharma, chief of Delhi Fire Services, told AFP. TV pictures showed a fire in a field and mangled and charred debris of the plane. More than a dozen fire engines and emergency workers have been rushed to the spot to douse the blaze.
