Indian Army chopper crashes in Kishtwar


HQ Northern Commands

At about 1115 hours on 04 May 2023, an Army Aviation ALH Dhruv helicopter on an operational mission made a precautionary landing on the banks of Marua river in the Kishtwar region of Jammu and Kashmir.

As per inputs, the pilots had reported a technical fault to the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) and proceeded for a precautionary landing. Due to the undulating ground, undergrowth and unprepared landing area, the helicopter apparently made a hard landing.

Immediate rescue operations were launched and Army rescue teams reached the site.

Two pilots and a technician were on board. All three injured personnel have been evacuated to Command Hospital, Udhampur.

A Court of Inquiry has been ordered.

Further details are being ascertained.
