Mangaluru: Tributes were paid to the victims of the 2010 Mangaluru air crash on the eighth anniversary of the May 22, 2010 Mangaluru air crash that took away over 150 lives. Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth Senthil S. led a short memorial service at the memorial and park built for them near New Mangalore Port in Panambur on Tuesday.

A one-minute silence was observed before Mr. Senthil laid a wreath at the memorial at the park.

The memorial abuts the park on the banks of the Phalguni and is designed in the shape of the tailplane. The park also houses the remains of 12 victims who remained unidentified. Solemnity marked the memorial with no speeches. M.L. Vyshali, Additional Deputy Commissioner made a brief remark.
