American plane (C-47-B) - WW II wreckage found in Tripura

American plane (C-47-B) - WW II wreckage found in Tripura :-

Agartala, Jan. 14: The Assam Rifles have discovered the crash site and a propeller of an American plane, which had crashed in the dense jungles of Tripura during World War II, after a monthlong search.

An Assam Rifles release issued late last evening stated that officers and jawans of 34 Battalion of Assam Rifles had recently discovered the crash site and the propeller of the plane in Birmonipara area after more than a monthlong search in December 2011 and January 2012.

The release said the American plane (C-47-B) had taken off from Rangoon airport in Burma (now Myanmar) with 11 "war criminals" and some other passengers for Calcutta on May 17, 1946 but had crashed in the dense jungles near Birmonipara village under Gandacherra subdivision in Dhalai district of Tripura. All the passengers and crew had died. The bodies were buried and a cemetery was built in the area.
