Officials claimed that search and rescue teams on Tuesday found a blood-stained shoe, half-burnt PAN card and a wallet of one of the two pilots of the IAF’s Sukhoi-30 fighter jet that crashed near the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border last week.
Earlier on Sunday, teams comprising of Indian Army, Indian Air Force and civil administration personnel had recovered the jet’s blackbox on May 28 from the crash site, located in a dense forest in Arunachal Pradesh.
"Search operations are continuing despite bad weather conditions. However, there is still no trace of the two pilots," Indian Army sources said.
The Sukhoi-30 had gone missing shortly after taking off from Tezpur Air Force station on May 23 on a routine training sortie and its wreckage was found on Friday in a dense forest, 60 km from Tezpur airbase.The Indian Air Force has already ordered a court of inquiry into the crash.
