Indian Military Plane Missing at China Border

A plane with twelve people aboard was reported missing earlier today: 

“The aircraft went missing after it took off from Mechuka air base, said Indian air force spokesman Ranjit Sahu in Guwahati, the largest city in northeast India.

Others said the aircraft may have crashed because of heavy rains in Arunachal Pradesh, a massive swathe of Indian territory which is claimed by adjoining China… A search was on across the militarised Indian sector, Sahu said, but added no wreckage of the missing plane had so far been found.
