Air India and Nepal Airlines flight avoided collision: Due to the negligence of the controller, the planes came close

Air India and Nepal Airlines planes had a narrow escape from a collision in Nepal. The incident is on Friday. Due to the negligence of the air traffic controller, both aircraft came very close in the air. The warning system of the aircraft alerted both pilots, due to which a major accident was averted.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) on Sunday removed three air traffic controllers from their posts on charges of negligence. This information has been given by CAAN spokesperson Jagannath Niroula.
CAAN spokesperson Niraula said that the Nepal Airlines flight was coming from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Kathmandu on Friday. At the same time, the Air India flight was coming from Delhi to Kathmandu. The Air India flight was coming down from a height of about 19,000 feet. At the same time, the flight Nepal Airlines was flying at an altitude of about 15 thousand feet at the same location. It appeared on the radar that both flights had come close.
Due to the carelessness of ATC, both flights had come so close, yet the controllers did not alert the pilots. The Nepal Civil Aviation Authority formed a three-member committee to investigate the matter. 3 ATCs were removed from the post after being found guilty in the investigation.
