An IAF An-32 that took off from Assam and headed to a forward landing ground in Arunachal Pradesh has disappeared from radar. Search operations currently on. It got airborne today from Jorhat at 1225 hrs for Mechuka Advance Landing Ground. The aircraft last contacted ground agencies at 1300 hrs, thereafter there has been no contact. Since the aircraft did not reach the airfield, overdue action was initiated by IAF. A total of eight crew and five passengers were onboard the aircraft.

From what I read from the link, the aircraft has not been found. What's your source for saying wreckage has been found?

This is the second An-32 vanished over Indian territory. So far no sign of An-32 lost contact over the Bay of Bengal in 2016.

Are these being replaced with the C-295s India ordered not too long ago?
