Some reports say all 19 people onboard dead.

Of the 19 people who were onboard 9 belonged to NDRF,6 to IAF and 4 others.

RIP bravehearts.

19 looks like a more credible number than the figure of 8, since everyone onboard has been killed.

It wouldn't make sense for the Mi-17 to be flying at less than half capacity.

Rip to the fallen. May peace be upon you.
