In her message on Instagram, she said:
And as he fell from the sky onto the ground,
With brokenbones ; all but a black box was found.
His ejection was safe but parachute caught fire,
Shattered the family and all that he desired
Never had he breathed so heavy, as for the last time,
While the bureaucracy enjoyed its corrupt cheese and wine.
We give our warriors outdated machines to fight,
They still deliver it with all their prowess and might.
Once again a martyr was killed,
As he fell from the sky onto the ground.
Unforgiving is a job of a test pilot
Someone has to risk it to show others the light
Proud of my husband
Fights on always my BATMAN !! जय हिंद

It is pertinent to mention that both pilots made a bid to eject but their parachutes caught fire and they were caught in the flames as the plane crashed with a huge explosion, the official added in his statement. The body of one the pilots was completely charred while the second pilot was rushed to the Command hospital.
It may be remembered that Samir Abrol and Negi were highly trained Aircraft & Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE) test pilots of Indian Air Force.
