In Baramati, two accidents took place involving aircraft of the company but it did not issue any official statement.

After journalists tried to seek information, company officials were evasive. On Thursday, the aircraft involved in the mishap was covered. An aircraft of the company crashed in an open area on Sunday. It appears that the company is not serious about the accidents.
