DGCA begins probe into aircraft crash

Hyderabad: A day after Maheema Gajaraj, a trainee pilot on Cessna-152 two-seater aircraft died in an aircraft crash in Nalgonda district, two separate teams — safety team of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) — visited the scene of offence on Sunday and recorded the statements of seven persons.

Apart from speaking to these seven persons, the officials visited the crash site and collected the evidences.

Later, the police officials shifted the mangled remains of the aircraft Flytech Academy hanger in Vijayapuri South near Nagarjunasagar in Guntur district of Andhra Pradesh, where further investigation will be done by these two specialised agencies.

Even as the teams conducted probe for several hours, they have not shared any details to the local district officials.

Unlike in most of the other aircraft accident cases, all the mangled parts of this aircraft were recovered from the close range of the crash spot.

The cause of accident is yet to be known. The police have registered a case under section 304 A (negligence causing death) of IPC against unidentified person. Further action will be taken, based on the report from the two investigation teams.

“The agencies might take atleast 3 months to submit their final report to Ministry of Civil Aviation,” Nalgonda district authorities told TOI.
