The twin engine aircraft was flying to Zāhedān with a crew of three (two pilots and a flight attendant) and four passengers, among them General Mahmoud Sadeqi, a senior police officer in charge of investigations, who was travelling to Zāhedān to investigate an incident involving an attack on police. While approaching Zāhedān by night, the aircraft hit a mountain located in the Sabzpushan Heights, north of the airport. All seven occupants were killed. A day later, Iranian authorities said the accident was caused by technical flaws, darkness and the pilot’s unfamiliarity with the region.
