Poor weather and dense fog are believed to be the causes of Wednesday’s crash. As per initial reports, the aircraft faced some technical problem and the crew members attempted to land on a field near a mountain. It was not clear what forced the plane to land. The front part of the aircraft is reported to have been damaged in the incident. Rescuers on the scene recovered the victims. Nepal Army spokesman Tara Bahadur Karki said a joint team of Nepal Police and Army has been dispatched to the area, which is near Chilkhaya village in the district. The crash sites are more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) apart, both on the northern, mountainous parts of Nepal. More than 700 people have died in plans crashes in Nepal since 1949.
