An Indian diplomatic bag was found 46 year later at the site of Air India aircraft’s crash site in the Alps near its highest Mont Blanc peak. The ill-fated passenger jet was on Mumbai-New York flight and everyone onboard was killed.
The mountaineers climbing on the Mont Blanc found the bag on one of the glaciers, the debris of the crashed aircraft, shoes and many other belongings of the passengers were strewn nearby.
The diplomatic bag was almost intact and was handed over to police in Chamonix town in the foothills. It is really difficult to find such things in the mountains. The diplomatic mail was finally delivered to its addressee – Indian mission in Switzerland, after 46 years.
