The Nepal government formed a six-member committee to probe the crash-landing of US-Bangla Airlines at Tribhuvan International Airport.
According to Buddhi Khadka at the Office of the Nepal Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, the panel is led by former director general at the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal Yagya Prasad Gautam.
Joint secretary at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Buddhi Sagar Lamichhane has been designated as the member secretary of the panel.
The panel has been assigned to initiate investigation as early as possible.
CAAN has also communicated with Dhaka aviation authority for necessary cooperation, according to the officials.
At least 49 people were killed on Monday when a US-Bangla flight crashed in Tribhuvan International Airport.
The chief executive officer of US-Bangla Airlines, Imran Asif, accused Kathmandu’s air traffic control of sending wrong signals while the airport’s general manager Raj Kumar Chettri said the pilot disregarded their messages and came in from the wrong direction.
