An inquiry has been ordered into a plane crash incident in Rewa in which a pilot has died and another was injured, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said here on Friday.

The mishap took place early this morning when the trainee plane crashed into a temple in Dumri Village of Rewa district, police said. “The inquiry will find out the reasons for the plane crash. A technical team has left from Mumbai and the accident site has been covered,” Mishra said in a press conference.
