The search and rescue operation for the missing AN 32 aircraft entered its fifth day on Tuesday even as hopes of finding alive the 29 defence personnel on board receded as all leads till now have turned out to be bad.
“A lot of resources are in place. All leads till now have turned out to be bad. We are trying to concentrate on some links or sound which has emitted from some area. Trying to find out, that needs to be ascertained but there were some false leads but false leads of similar type,” Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said here today.
