IAF chopper crash: Rajnath conveys findings of tri-services probe

– World Affairs SRS

The Indian Air Force on Wednesday apprised Defense Minister Rajnath Singh of the findings of the tri-services investigation into the December 8 helicopter crash that killed CDS General Bipin Rawat and 13 others, people familiar with the development said.

He said the investigation team has already completed its investigation into the crash of the Russian-origin Mi-17V5 helicopter.

Earlier, sources had suggested that the accident was not the result of any technical error in the Indian Air Force helicopter. Although there is no official confirmation of this.

The Court of Inquiry into the accident was presided over by Air Marshal Manvendra Singh.

Gen Rawat’s wife Madhulika, his defense advisor Brigadier LS Lidar, Staff Officer to the Chief of Defense Staff Lt Col Harjinder Singh and respected pilot Group Captain Varun Singh were among the 13 others killed in the crash near Coonoor in Tamil Nadu.

It turns out that the investigation team investigated all possible scenarios for the accident, including possible human error or whether it was a case of disorientation of the crew while the helicopter was preparing for landing.

Air Marshal Singh, who is currently heading the Bengaluru-headquartered Training Command of the Indian Air Force, is known as one of the best air crash investigators in the country.

Prior to taking over the reins of Training Command, the Air Marshal was Director General (Inspection and Security) at Air Headquarters and developed various protocols for flight safety while in office.
