Pilot safe as MiG-21 crashes in Haryana

Sirsa (Haryana) :  An Indian Air Force MiG-21 fighter crashed in Haryana s Sirsa district Friday following a technical snag but the pilot managed to eject moments before the plane went down, an official said.

The aircraft, which had taken off from the Sirsa airbase on a routine mission, crashed near village Mangalia, 35 km from here. An official spokesman said that the pilot, Wing Commander J.D. Singh was safe.

A 19-year-old girl working in the fields nearby went into a state of shock upon hearing the explosion and was being treated at the Sirsa General Hospital. Sirsa deputy commissioner Samir Pal Srow directed health department officials to provide medical care to the affected girl free of cost.

A number of fire tenders were rushed to the spot and the burning debris of the aircraft was doused immediately, a Sirsa district administration spokesman said. The site of the crash is over 300 km from Chandigarh.
