Plane crashed in Afghanistan is not Indian: MoCA

Refuting claims of Afghan authorities, ministry of civil aviation of India said that the plane that crashed was not Indian.

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

“The unfortunate 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 said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Russian aviation authorities said today a Russian-registered plane with six people thought to be on board disappeared from radar screens over Afghanistan the previous night, after local Afghan police said they had received reports of a crash.

Russian aviation authorities said in a statement the plane was a charter ambulance flight travelling from , via Uzbekistan to Moscow on a French-made Dassault Falcon 10 jet manufactured in 1978, news agency Reuters reported.

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.
