New Delhi: Ten people died when a small Border Security Force (BSF) aircraft crashed into a wall near the Delhi airport this morning, killing everyone on board.

The plane was a Super King aircraft headed for Ranchi, carrying 10 BSF personnel– 3 officers and 7 technicians. The technicians lost contact with ground control, which reportedly led to the crash within seconds at around 9:50 AM.


“All 10 Border Security Force troopers have been killed,” fire officials said.

NDTV reported that the plane hit a wall and then crashed into a septic tank. The aircraft then caught fire, which has reportedly now been put off with the help of 15 fire engines.

BSF Deputy General DK Pathakhas said that it was too early to know the reason for the crash. He added that the Ministry of Civil Aviation & the BSF are conducting inquiries into the cause which involves technical details, and so, it will take time.

The DG also informed that in addition to what the government announces as compensation, each person killed in crash would get Rs 20 lakh from the BSF’s internal insurance fund.
