A chartered Indian aircraft carrying military personnel exploded in a fireball and killed all 10 people on board after crashing into a wall shortly after take-off from the Indian capital's Indira Gandhi International airport, a minister said.
"It's a matter of grave concern that the plane crashed soon after take-off. I am extremely sad to say that all 10 people, including the pilot, have died," Mr Mahesh Sharma, the junior civil aviation minister, told reporters.
The small twin-engine plane was on its way to Ranchi in the eastern state of Jharkhand and was carrying technicians from India's Border Security Force. The technicians were to repair a helicopter in Ranchi.
