Kathmandu: Eleven people were injured when an aircraft with nine passengers and two crew members on board crash landed in Nepal’s Kalikot district on Friday, the media said.

The aircraft belonging to Kasthamandap Air “crashed” while it was bound to the remote Jumla district, Xinhua news agency reported. 

The incident happened two days after a Tara Air plane crashed in Nepal, killing all 23 people on board.

The Kathmandu Post also said that the crash landing took place at Chilkhaya. The single engine 9N-AJB aircraft had 11 people, including two crew members.

Nepal Police spokesperson Madhav Raj Joshi said the plane was diverted from Jumla after it failed to land there.

Nepal Army spokesperson Brigadier General Tara Bahadur Karki said a joint police-army team was on its way to the site.

The Nepalgunj Air Traffic Controller suspected that some passengers may have sustained major injuries. Helicopters from Pokhara and Nepalgunj were ready for rescue operations.
