An Indian military helicopter crashed in the eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday, killing one pilot and injuring another, the Indian army said.
The incident took place in the Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh, near the border with China.
A routine flight of an Army Cheetah helicopter in the forward area near Tawang on October 5 ended in disaster, an army statement said.
Two pilots were taken to the nearest military hospital after the crash, the report said. The pilot, Lt. Col. Saurabh Yadav, succumbed to his injuries and the co-pilot is undergoing treatment.
It is noted that the cause of the accident is still unknown.
Last December, India’s defense chief, General Bipin Rawat, was among 13 people killed in a helicopter crash. This made people wonder what would happen to the military reforms he led.
Rawat was India’s first defense chief. The post was created by the government in 2019 and was considered close to Narendra Modi.
The 63-year-old was traveling with his wife and other senior officers in a Russian Mi-17 helicopter that crashed not far from its destination in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.
