Nineteen passengers and four crew members suffered minor injuries.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Commander attempting take off after experiencing uncommanded and uncontrollable yaw to the left during take off roll and executed pre-mature lift off to avoid aircraft rolling onto kutcha surface resulting in the aircraft to crash on to the ground.
Loss of directional control was probably due to deflection of left wheel which was a contributory factor to the accident."
