Turkish private plane crashes south of Tehran, Iran

Turkish plane with eleven on board crashes in Iran All dead

A wealthy Turkish socialite and her friends were among the 11 people killed on Sunday when a private plane bringing them home from a Dubai bachelorette party crashed into an Iranian mountainside.

Local media reported the aircraft came down near Shahr-e Kord city, around 230 miles south of Tehran.

The flight took off Sunday from Sharjah International Airport in the UAE, home to the low-priced carrier Air Arabia.

Another Iranian official representing the civil aviation's organization said that the authorities had launched investigation into the incident.

According to some preliminary statistics, the aircraft had three crew and eight passengers on board.

A group of eight women, including 28-year-old Mina Basaran, the daughter of a Turkish business tycoon, died in a private jet crash that was flying from Dubai to Turkey.

The ministry identified the plane as a Canadair CL604, tail number TC-TRB. It was reportedly owned by Basaran Holding, a company active in construction and building luxury yachts.

Her condemnation for Agrawal came just moments after the latter left the Samajwadi Party to join the BJP. Agrawal said the Samajwadi Party was a strong force in 2012 but had been considerably weakened.

Ms Basaran worked for her father's company Basaran Holdings.

Flight-tracking website FlightRadar24 writes the plane gained altitude and within minutes dropped drastically.

The bride-to-be had shared other images across the weekend of her on, and getting ready to board, the jet and within hours of the crash, there were thousands of comments on the Instagram photos offering condolences.

Who was Mina Basaran, the Turkish bride whose private Sharjah-Istanbul plane crashed? Iranian media said some were burnt beyond recognition and would have to be identified through DNA.

Just a day before the crash on Sunday, Mina posted a smiling picture of her and seven friends at a Dubai resort, nine.com.au writes, but it seems her Instagram account has since been deleted.

The families of the victims had arrived at the nearby Shahr-e Kord airport along with a Turkish diplomat, said deputy governor of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, Jafar Mardani.
