IRAN AIRLINER CRASHES KILLING ALL THE PASSANGERS

An airplane carrying 40 passengers crashed in a residential area after taking off from Tehran's Mehrabad airport on Sunday morning, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported, citing a spokesman for the Iranian Red Crescent Society and its own reporter.
Initial reports were that 40 passengers, including seven children, were killed in the crash, IRNA reported. No information was available on whether anyone on the ground was injured.
  • The plane was bound for Tabas in northeastern Iran and crashed into the Azad residential block on Mina 6 Boulevard, it reported.
  • IRNA reported that an engine shutdown caused the crash. Iran's aviation sector has suffered repeated crashes which have been blamed by Iranian politicians on international sanctions.
  • Those sanctions have restricted Iranian carriers from buying new aircraft. For years, planes have been kept in service through parts imported on the black market, cannibalised from other planes or reproduced locally, aviation sources say.
  • Iran's four largest carriers - Iran Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Mahan Air and Iran Air Tours - all have average fleet ages above 22 years, Iranian media have reported. They serve a market of 76 million people.
US companies Boeing Co and General Electric Co have said they are seeking to export parts to Iran under the agreement for sanctions relief.
The chief of Iran Air said the airline will need at least 100 passenger jets once sanctions against the country are lifted.
Mehrabad is located in a western suburb of Tehran and mainly functions as a domestic airport, although it also serves some international routes.

the judgment of the High Court presided by Datuk V. T. Singham, the current IGP was not only found to have given misleading information to the public at that time, but also failed to follow the instruction of the Attorney-General to investigate the case as murder rather than causing hurt, and did not direct a formal departmental inquiry on the case.
The High Courd judge also questioned the failure of the then Selangor police chief in his duty to hold an inquest into the death of Kugan and clarify his misleading public statement.
More damning, the judge concluded that there were elements of a cover up on the real cause for the death of Kugan.
