NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today expressed pain over the death of 10 people in the crash of a BSF plane here and said his thoughts are with the families of the deceased.

"Pained by the loss of lives in the BSF plane crash in Delhi. My thoughts are with the families of the deceased," Modi tweeted.

All the 10 people on board a small Ranchi-bound BSF plane carrying technical personnel were killed when it crashed and burst into flames in Dwarka, just outside the IGI airport here shortly after take-off.

Aviation sources said the accident happened at around 9.50 AM when the twin-engine Superking plane crashed into the airport boundary wall near a railway track and landed in a sewage treatment plant while returning to Ranchi apparently due to a technical problem five minutes after it took off.

BSF sources said the technicians were on their way to Ranchi to repair a helicopter.
