QUETTA: The body of an instructor pilot, who went missing after his jet gyrocopter crashed nearly three days ago, was found on the shores of Balochistan’s Kund Malir area on Sunday.

Officials said that pilot Qazi Ajmal flew his jet gyrocopter from Karachi and entered Balochistan three days ago. Since then his whereabouts remained untraceable.

“The jet gyrocopter of Qazi Ajmal crashed in Lasbela district,” Amanullah Sajidi, a wildlife official in Balochistan said. He said the wreckage of the plane and the body of the pilot were found in Kund Malir, a coastal area of Lasbela district.

The plane collided with a mountain, said Ayub Achakzaia, a senior police officer of Lasbela district. He said the pilot’s body was shifted to a hospital.

Qazi Ajmal belonged to the famous Qazi family of Peshawar.
