A bomb explosion in the forward cargo hold was blamed by Canadian investigators for the crash of an Air-India jet that killed 329 people last June. The finding is contained in a draft report by the Canadian Aviation Safety Board, Bernard Caiger, a consultant to the board, testified in a New Delhi court investigating the crash of the Boeing 747 in the North Atlantic. He said a loud sound that could have been an explosion was recorded just before the cockpit voice recorder ceased functioning. Earlier, five Indian scientists reported that an explosion apparently occurred in the front cargo hold.
