QUETTA/ PESHAWAR:

The body of pilot Qazi Ajmal, who went missing after his ultra-light plane crashed nearly three days ago, was found in Balochistan’s Kund Malir area on Sunday.

The officials said the licensed pilot took off from Karachi and his gyrocopter crashed in Awaran district, leaving him dead on the spot three days ago.

According to Balochistan Wildlife Department official Amanullah Sajidi, Ajmal's tiny aircraft crashed into the mountains near the coastal area of the province.

Lasbela district SP Ayub Achakzai said the body of the pilot was being shifted from Kund Malir to Hub area.

The deceased pilot belonged to the renowned Qazi family of Peshawar.

Meanwhile, Qazi’s family claimed that the deceased had gone to Balochistan to participate in a festival for ten days and at one night while he was in Hingol National Park he received a call from someone asking him to leave the area immediately “as an attack on him could take place anytime”.

His family while demanding investigation into the incident said Ajmal was compelled to fly at night time which caused the crash.

The family said they received the body of the pilot on Sunday morning and his funeral prayer was also offered earlier today.

Qazi Brothers are an asset of our country. They are promoting flying in Pakistan which is really an uphill task. We salute PAF Qazi Brothers and especially the Late Qazi Ajmal. May Allah keep his soul in peace.
