Vice Air Marshal, OP Tiwari sent out a formal letter to the families of those onboard AN-32 aircraft and said that their ‘massive search and rescue operation (SAR)’ has failed to yield any substantial breakthrough and thus it is “unlikely” that the missing personnel would have survived.

 

On 22 July, IAF’s Antonov-32 aircraft had gone missing over the Bay of Bengal while on its way to Port Blair.

There were 29 people on board the ill-fated flight which included six crew members.

The letter sent out these 29 families was titled “Presumption of Demise” and mentioned that a Court of Inquiry’s “careful scrutiny of the circumstantial evidence” pointed that it was “unlikely” that they survived and thus requested family members to sign the “certificate of presumption of death”.

Once these certificates are signed, IAF can start legal proceedings for compensation.
