Crash on market at Takerhat, Bengal, 31 July 1945

Not really post-WW2 for the area, but even so.

Some newspapers in Holland and Canada (Winnipeg Tribune) reported a airplane crash on a market place in Takerhat, Bengal (now Bangladesh) in which some 100 people on the ground were killed and others injured. This was on on just before 31 July 1945.
I assume the airplane crew was killed as well.

No further details about airplane (military or civilian), operator and so on in the very short newspaper articles other than an air crash had occurred and feared number of casualties.

Any info about this accident is welcome, thanks.
