Footage captured by a surveillance camera in the vicinity showed the aircraft descending abruptly before crashing into the ground, igniting a fireball. Local police chief Hussein Omar Khan informed the media that the Beechcraft Model 390 had onboard six passengers and two crew members at the time of the crash, which occurred around 2 p.m., as reported by Reuters.

The exact cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
