New Delhi : The Indian Air Force search teams managed to reach the AN-32 crash site on Thursday morning after they could not reach the site on Wednesday due to bad weather.
All 13 personnel on board the missing AN-32 aircraft, which crashed in Arunachal Pradesh, have died, the Indian Air Force said on Thursday.
“IAF is sad to inform that there are no survivors from the crash of AN-32,” the Force said in a tweet.
The families of the 13 personnel have already been informed that there are no survivors.
Defence sources on Wednesday stated that the operation to airlift 15 mountaineers by helicopters to search for possible survivors in the site is complete. However, the team was yet to reach the crash site due to inclement weather and terrain. On Wednesday, the team campaigned overnight due to difficult terrain and weather.
