Baku, December 22, AZERTAC

A light aircraft has crashed on take-off near the airport in the Indian capital, Delhi, killing 10 people, according to BBC.

The Beechcraft King Air plane chartered by India's Border Security Force (BSF) came down after hitting a wall in Dwarka district and burst into flames.

The plane was carrying members of the border patrol force, officials said.

Suraj, an eyewitness, told reporters that the plane hit a wall, caught fire and crashed in a field outside the airport.

"There were about 10 people on the flight. I saw two bodies. There were some laborers working on the ground where the plane fell," he said.

More than a dozen fire engines and emergency workers have been rushed to the spot to douse the blaze.
