GANDHINAGAR – A woman trainee pilot and the flight instructor were killed in a trainer aircraft that crashed in the hilly region of Madhya Pradesh on Saturday.

Local police officials told the media that two burnt corpses were recovered from the spot. Security forces were summoned due to insurgency in the area.
