Investigation into the recent crash of VT-AC plane at Baramati near Pune was still on and it would take sometime before the final report would be submitted to the Civil Aviation Ministry.

"Investigations have not yet been completed. It will take sometime before we reach any conclusion. We have come out with some preliminary findings but these are not conclusive," a Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) official told PTI in Mumbai on Saturday.

An aircraft operated by the Baramati-based Carver Aviation Academy had crashed into the Nira river near Baramati on March 14. However, the two-member crew had a miraculous escape.

When asked whether the crash was caused due to some 'non-standard behaviour' of the cabin crew as reported in a section of the media, the official termed it as "mere speculation."
