An Indian military aircraft with 13 people on board went missing on Monday in the northeast of the country, the defence ministry said.

The AN-32 aircraft had taken off from Jorhat in Assam but lost contact with ground staff before its scheduled landing in Arunachal Pradesh's Menchuka airfield.

There were 13 on board the aircraft and all of them were air warriors and there is no civilian, Singh said. IAF officers said the twin-engine aircraft which took off from Assam around 12.27 pm lost contact with ground control at 1 pm. The Mechuka Advanced Landing Ground is located near the China border.

In the wake of the incident, the IAF had launched Sukhoi-30 combat aircraft and C-130 Special Ops aircraft on a search mission for locating the IAF AN-32 Aircraft that last contacted ground sources at this noon.

While there were reports that the wreckage of the aircraft was spotted near Tato in West Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh, the IAF has denied this. Since the aircraft did not reach the destination, overdue actions were initiated by Indian Air Force. "He has apprised me of the steps taken to find the missing aircraft".

Following a massive search operation, the wreckage of the aircraft was found 25 km from the landing area. "I pray for the safety of all passengers on board". The people on board were presumed dead. However, the IAF rejected the reports and said the search operations will continue through the night.
