A small plane belonging to the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) crashed in New Delhi’s Dwarka area Tuesday, killing all 10 people on board, according to the Times of India. The plane, a Superking aircraft, was reportedly carrying paramilitary technicians.

The plane, which was on its way to Ranchi — a city in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand — crashed moments after it lost contact with ground control, NDTV, a local news network reported.

At least 15 fire tenders reportedly rushed to the scene of the crash. Some sources reportedly said that the plane caught fire, which was later contained.

All flights at the New Delhi airport have been suspended following the crash, India Today, a local news outlet reported.
