Bottomline

Five people were killed after a chartered aircraft crashed near an under-construction building in Mumbai’s Ghatkopar on Thursday afternoon. Those killed include two pilots and two aircraft maintenance engineers on board and a pedestrian in the Ghatkopar area where the plane crashed, police said. Sources said the plane crashed in an open area near the building and the death toll could have been much higher if it crash landed in a busy area.
