US-Bangla Airlines authorities claimed that there was no defect in the BS-211 flight which crashed at Trivuban International Airport in Nepal`s capital Kathmandu. Pilot captain Abid Sultan was also physically and mentally fit.

The Commission did not reach any conclusions in the initial report about the exact cause of the delay in the pilot and the tower, due to the fact that the aircraft is in an accident.
According to the initial report, the triangulation runway, taxiway and landing area were suitable for getting the model of the model. Firefighters and rescuers started rescue operations after reaching the aircraft in two minutes after the accident.
US-Bangla CEO Imran Asif, expressing doubts about this part of the report, said, "We know from what we have learned from the local witness and injured air passengers, if the rescuers were actually engaged in two minutes, the number of casualties may have been very low."
