The Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane, en-route to Pangkal Pinang from Jakarta, crashed near Kerawang just 13 minutes after take off.

The search teams are still recovering bodies of the people that were onboard.

Indonesia’s transportation minister, Budi Karya Sumadi, has asked Lion Air to suspend the licenses of the maintenance officials  of the plane, while they aid in the investigation.

According to media reports, investigators have informed that the preliminary report into the accident could be released within a month but complete findings will take several months.
