Chopper collision kills five Indian soldiers
Five Indian army troops died when their chopper crashed near the country’s contentious border with China last October, the defence ministry reported.
The Advance Light Helicopter crashed south of Tuting, a small village in India’s northeastern Arunachal Pradesh state’s Line of Actual Control with China.
The ministry stated that air traffic controllers received a mayday call before the crash, indicating technical or mechanical problems.
A Cheetah helicopter pilot from the Indian army was slain weeks earlier in Tawang.
India’s army’s cheetah helicopter crashed again in 2022. The first occurred in March near the Line of Control in Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The incident’s casualties matched the recent crash.
