Around 50 passengers are feared dead as US-Bangla Biman aircraft crash landed in Tribhuvan International airport in Kathmandu on Monday. Airport security sources said about half a dozen passengers who were rescued in ‘critical condition’ have been sent to the hospital, while there were many ‘bodies’ lying in charred condition.
“We cannot give exact number of casualty as we are still finding out all details. At the moment our priority is to rush the victims to the hospitals,” sources from the spot said, adding ‘the fire has now been controlled’.
The plane that was coming from Dhaka caught fire immediately after it hit the ground off the runway. The cause of accident is not yet known. All flights in and out of the Tribhuvan International Airport have been cancelled following the crash.
