Absolutely nothing to do with HAL.
Heliopter hit electricity transmission lines while taking off.
Actually it was coming in to land from Pathankot and has been reported as a technical snag.

Two pilots were seriously injured after An advanced light helicopter (ALH) Dhruv of the Indian Army made a crash-landing in Jammu and Kashmir's Lakhanpur area in Kathua district on Monday. Kathua SSP Shalinder Mishra said the injured have been rushed to nearby Military Base Hospital.

The chopper, which was coming from Pathankot, was forced to make a crash-landing in an Army area in the Lakhanpur belt, Mishra said.

That means, it had landed safely before and I am sure all the flight safety parameters were considered. But upon taking off, suddenly caught in the wires? Pilot error?

The official in below video says that, had the visual from Police Station when a Military A/C (Heli in-fact) came down and heard the sound of blast. Later, came to know that Mil Chopper crash landed.
