    There is no mention of any foul play, it was most probably a mechanical malfunction.

    RIP...the brave warriors.

    They will never mention it.

    SAMs had bee recovered from BLA by rangers, and recently we had seen many PAF crashes in Baluchistan area and this one now over Sakardu!!!! Alarming.

    BLA operates in baluchistan n not gilgit baltistan.

    if it were bla than they would have shot down a chopper in baluchistan.
    Rangers operate in Punjab n Sind. while FC operates in Baluchistan n KPK.
    i think u ment frontier corps n not rangers

    If I am not wrong Skardu is the same area where there was an avalanche and killed 125 soldiers.
