The MP government has suspended a senior pilot for "severe carelessness" in connection with the jet disaster that killed Remdesivir.




Majid Akhtar, a senior pilot for the Madhya Pradesh government, has been suspended for "severe negligence" in the crash landing of an aeroplane at Gwalior airport on May 6 this year. "Serious negligence on the part of Captain Majid Akhtar resulted in damage to the jet and loss to the government," said MP Aviation Department Secretary M Selvendran in a recent suspension decision.Akhtar "flew the aircraft excessively low and failed to see the arrester barrier" before the runway, according to the DGCA licence suspension letter, and "the approach profile of the aircraft was not adequate for landing in the touchdown zone and resulted in hitting the arrester barrier." According to the DGCA letter, Akhtar was issued a show case notice on July 1 after his explanation was deemed "unsatisfactory." The crash landing was caused by a human error, according to the report, and Akhtar's actions put the plane's safety in jeopardy while also violating the Aircraft Rules.According to the DGCA letter, Akhtar was issued a show case notice on July 1 after his explanation was deemed "unsatisfactory."

The jet had been turned to scrap, according to a source, while the opposition Congress had claimed at the time that officials responsible for not insuring the plane and creating a loss to the state exchequer were being protected.
