It was the sixth PAF crash in seven months and the second in a week, raising concerns over the safety of its largely Chinese and locally made fleet.


The cause of the accident was not immediately clear.


One of the two-seater propeller Mushshak planes crashed on a house, injuring a girl and an elderly man, and the second fell in nearby fields in Rashkai, 160 kilometres (100 miles) northwest of the capital. The injured were shifted to the hospital with the help of local residents, police told.
