How did Sanjay Gandhi's plane crash in mid air?

I recently came across the intriguing story of Sanjay Gandhi's mid-air plane crash. This tragic accident occurred on June 23, 1980 when Sanjay, son of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, was flying a small aircraft over Delhi. It is believed that he lost control of the plane while performing an aerobatic maneuver. The aircraft then crashed into a residential area, leading to his untimely death at the age of 33. This event not only shocked the nation, but also had significant political implications in India.
