Army Helicopter across LOC

An Army helicopter had strayed into Pakistan air space on 23rd October 2011 primarily due to navigational error. The helicopter landed in Pakistan and returned after refuelling following talks at the level of the Army authorities on both sides.

 On return it was found that the GPS data of the helicopter had been erased. A departmental enquiry was conducted by HQ Northern Command on the incident and administrative action is being initiated against the concerned personnel. 

 This information was given by Minister of Defence Shri A.K. Antony in written reply to Dr. Kirit Premjibhai Solanki in Lok Sabha today.
