The police commander also said the plane belonged to the Fara Sepehr Iranian Company, which operates in Bojnourd located in the northeastern province.
He added that the crashed plane was flying from Kalaleh to Bojnourd when it crashed due to a technical failure near the Robat Gharabil gas pipeline.
