BSF plane crash: Why are lives of troops being put at risk?

Tearful relatives of the victims of the BSF plane crash confronted Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday with a slew of questions including why "old aircraft" were being used and lives of troops put at risk. A distraught and agitated daughter of sub-inspector Rabinder Kumar, who was among the 10 personnel killed in Tuesday's crash, asked Rajnath Singh and BSF director general DK Pathak to "address" these issues so that soldiers on the line of duty are not killed in such mishaps.
