A light aircraft has crashed on take-off near the airport in the Indian capital, Delhi, killing 10 people.
The Beechcraft King Air plane chartered by India’s Border Security Force (BSF) came down after hitting a wall in Dwarka district and burst into flames.
The plane was carrying members of the border patrol force, officials said.
In May 2011, 10 people died after a small medical ambulance aircraft flying a critically ill patient crashed in Faridabad town near Delhi.
Tuesday’s incident occurred as the twin-engine plane was on its way to Ranchi in the eastern state of Jharkhand from Delhi’s international airport.
