The post-mortem report of the people who lost their lives in the recent plane crash in Ghatkopar highlighted 'shock due to burn and poly-trauma' as the cause of death.

Five people were killed after a chartered plane crashed near an under-construction building in Ghatkopar on Thursday.

The plane was about to land at the airport when it crashed near Jagruti building, where construction work was underway.

Speaking to the media, father of the maintenance engineer Surabhi Gupta - one of the five killed in the incident said, "It was yesterday morning that we spoke over phone. We had a routine conversation before she told me that the aircraft she was going to fly in later in the day was sick. She said the aircraft was in a bad condition."

The grieving father wondered who gave the permission to fly a "sick aircraft".

"How was permission given to fly a sick aircraft and who gave this permission," he asked.
