Nepal transfers six air traffic officers after crash
Six officers stationed at the Air Traffic Control Tower who witnessed the US-Bangla plane crash in Kathmandu have been shifted to another department to "minimize shock of the accident," reports Nepali newspaper My Republica. A flight of US-Bangla aircraft carrying 67 passengers and four flight crew crashed outside Tribhuvan International Airport on Monday. It was flying from Dhaka to Kathmandu.

“This is a standard procedure to release stress after fateful incident. They witnessed a huge disaster and they are shocked. Hence, we’ve transferred them to other departments to reduce their stress post-crash,” Rajan Pokharel, Deputy Director General of Civil Aviation Authority said.

Pokharel clarified that the transfer was not due to the leak of audio talk between ATC and the pilot before the impact.
