Such reports are speculative and misleading, said Spokes person.
He also said that, the fact of the matter is that both engines of the aircraft were fully operational at the time of takeoff from Chitral and some problem developed during flight.
Gilani further said that the whole incident is being thoroughly investigated by Safety Investigation Board, which is an independent body working under the Aviation Division.
