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.
The deceased pilot has been identified as Vimal Kumar, a resident of Patna, Bihar, while injured trainee Sonu Yadav of Jaipur is being treated, Mishra said.
The trainee aircraft of a private company was taxiing from Chorhata Airstrip when it crashed after colliding with the dome of a temple.
Prima facie, bad weather and foggy condition prevailing in the area are being attributed as the reason for the crash.
