Russia plane crash includes two Indians among killed: Spokesman Vikas Swarup

New Delhi: Among those killed in the FlyDubai plane crash in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don are two Indians, spokesman Vikas Swarup of the Ministry of External Affairs said on Friday.

At least 62 passengers and crew have died in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don during an attempted landing by the FlyDubai plane, which crashed afterwards, Russian officials said.

“The aircraft hit the ground and broke into pieces,” the Committee said in a statement on its website. “According to preliminary data, there were 55 passengers aboard and 7 crew members. They all died.”

Vikas Swarup said the Indian embassy in Moscow got this information from the list put out by the Russian authorities.

Swarup was appointed on March 2015 as the official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs of India to head its Public Diplomacy divisions at New Delhi.

Swarup said the two Indians that appear on the list are identified as Anju Kathirvel Aiyappan and Mohan Shyam. (IANS)
