“Squadron leader Tanveer Ahmed embraced martyrdom when a Mirage aircraft crashed near Gadap Town around 30 nautical miles from Karachi (around 55 kilometres north of Karachi),” Air Commodore Tariq Mehmood, a spokesman for the PAF told AFP.

He said the pilot was on a routine night operational training mission when the mishap came to pass.

Mehmood gave no reasons for the crash and said an inquiry committee had been formed to investigate the causes of the accident.

He said no loss of life or property was reported from the ground.

Rao Anwar, a senior police official who visited the crash site, said human remains were scattered at the site of the crash.

“It seems the plane caught fire before it crashed into the ground, pieces of human organs are scattered around the place,” he told AFP.

In June this year, a Pakistan Air Force fighter plane crashed at a bus terminal on the outskirts of Karachi killing four people, including both pilots.
