No need to transfer Ghatkopar plane crash probe to CBI: Civil Aviation ministry

Mumbai: The Ministry of Civil Aviation informed the Bombay High Court Thursday that it was conducting a thorough probe into the plane crash in Mumbai's Ghatkopar area in June this year and there was no need for transferring the investigation to the CBI or any other independent agency. In an affidavit filed through the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB), the ministry informed the court that it had also taken custody from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of files relating to the said aircraft and its crew.
There was no chance of any compromise in the probe or tampering of evidence, it said.
The affidavit was filed this morning before a bench of Justices Ranjit More and Bharati Dangre in compliance with a previous order of the court.
