Tulasa Pokharel, an eyewitness whose house is located barely meters away from the crash site said that, she saw the plane with black smoke landing on an open space on the bank of Manohara river. "That time I could hear some people inside the plane wailing and screaming.When we went to inform the police and other locals about the incident and came back, there was just silence. We saw the plane burning and all of them dead," she quoted.

The Nepalese crew members are identified as Captain Bijaya Tandukar, co-Pilot Takeshi Thapa and air hostess Ruja Shakya.
