Three killed in Indian Army chopper crash near China border​

New Delhi, India. | Published: 16:54, Oct 21,2022

At least three armed forces personnel were killed after an Indian Army chopper crashed near the border with China in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh on Friday morning.

The tragedy occurred in a mountainous terrain near Migging village of the state’s Upper Siang district. The ill-fated advanced light helicopter was carrying five Army personnel when it crashed.

‘Two dead bodies have been recovered out of three that were seen. Efforts are on to recover the third body,’ the Indian Army said in a statement.

A court of inquiry has been ordered, a defence officer told the local media.

This is the second military chopper crash in Arunachal Pradesh in one month. Earlier this month, a pilot lost his life in a similar chopper crash earlier this month.

In December 2021, India’s first military chief General Bipin Rawat, his wife, and 12 other armed forces personnel died in a similar chopper crash in southern India.

The 63-year-old Chief of Defence Staff was on his way to deliver a lecture at Defence Services Staff College in the southern state of Tamil Nadu when the ill-fated Mi-17 V5 chopper crashed just before landing in a hilly terrain and burst into flames.

Are these crashes happening without even anyone shooting at them?
What will happen if they actually come under attack?

So True ....Hope you also pay attention to daily news of India literally imploding from inside thanks to Modi religious hatred policies. Pakistan needs nothing to do but just watch India tear itself apart slowly and excruciatingly...... No country ever fell apart due to financial downturn but countries do fall apart when one group of people are pushed to genocide.

China may have used some laser tech to bring the chopper down.

As usual Modi and India will not name China instead call it an accident.

I am one of the biggest modi critics on the forum and speak out against bhakts almost every single day, but advantages of his rule outweigh the damage he has done. He has pretty much wiped out all caste based regional parties, united all caste groups, something that would have taken next 50-100 years to achieve otherwise. Soon, India will be a 2 party state like any matured democracy as opposed to having dozens of regional father-son parties doing caste politics. Before him, India was divided into all caste groups, along with Hindu muslim divde, now it is just Hindu muslim divide to a greater extent. He has single handedly propelled India like 50 years into the future socially and given a political stability unmatched in last 75 years. I won't even began to state his other achievements like total electrification, housing for poor, massive infrastructure investment, trying to bring manufacturing to india(and succeeding to some extent), solar power, digital payments, river interlinking, opening bank accounts for all citizens, biometrics adhaar card system etc etc.

He is a total failure though on health and educational front.
