US-Bangla plane crash: Sushma Swaraj phones foreign minister, condoles loss of lives
India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has spoken to Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali, now in Singapore, over phone and expressed deepest condolences and sympathies to Bangladesh for the loss of lives in the crash of an US-Bangla Airlines plane in Kathmandu, Nepal. She also extended her condolences and sympathies to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the people of Bangladesh. Swaraj offered any assistance required in Kathmandu, and shared thoughts and prayers for those injured in the crash and with people of Bangladesh, according to the Indian High Commission in Dhaka. At least 49 people died as the US-Bangla Airlines aircraft from Dhaka crashed at Tribhuvan International Airport in the capital of the Himalayan country on Monday, said officials. Many injured were rushed to nearby hospitals, officials added. The death toll remained unclear amid the chaos of the crash and the rush of badly injured victims to nearby hospitals. Brig Gen Gokul Bhandari, the Nepal army spokesman, said 50 people died and the fate of the others was unknown, reports AP.
