The socialite was also in line to run her father’s business, Basaran Investment Holding, involved in food, finance, energy, construction, tourism and travel industries.

It’s believed the plane was owned by Miss Basaran’s father’s company.

It was reported that local villagers had reached the site in the Zagros Mountains and “found only badly burned bodies and no survivors”.
