Afghanistan claims Indian passenger plane crashed in Badakhshan

Afghanistan claims Indian passenger plane crashed in Badakhshan

The Afghan provincial regime and local police have claimed that a plane arriving from India crashed in the Wakhan region of Badakhshan on its way to Moscow. The Taliban's information and culture chief in Badakhshan said the passenger plane crashed in the Topkhaneh Mountains, which span the province's Karan, Manjan and Zibak districts.

The Taliban police command in Badakhshan said the plane, which had disappeared from radar the night before, crashed in the high mountains of the Topchana region. This region includes the province's Zibak and Keran o Munjan districts, Afghan broadcaster AMU TV reported.

However, now Indian government sources have provided clarification on the issue. They said the route is never used by Indian aircraft and therefore the plane is not from India. “This is not an Indian plane. The plane that crashed in the mountains of Topkhana, bordering Kuran-Munjan and Zibak districts of Badakhshan province, was a Moroccan-registered DF 10 aircraft,” a senior official of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) said. . .

The Indian government had earlier sent a team to check the details. Reports indicate that there may be victims. Although the aircraft is said to be a passenger transporter, the number of passengers on board is currently unknown.

A plane that crashed in Afghanistan this morning is not an Indian aircraft, the government said today after Afghan local media reported the passenger plane was believed to be flying from Delhi to Moscow.

"The unfortunate plane crash that has just occurred in Afghanistan is neither an Indian scheduled aircraft nor a non-scheduled (NSOP)/charter aircraft. It is a Moroccan registered small aircraft. More details are awaited," the Civil Aviation Ministry said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

The aircraft crashed in Badakhshan province, which borders China, Tajikistan and Pakistan but the exact site of the accident was unknown, news agency AFP reported quoting a local official.
