Paramilitary ALH Dhruv Crashes, Three Killed
A HAL Dhruv helicopter crashed today, killing its three-man crew from India’s paramilitary Border Security Force (BSF). This was the fifth crash of the indigenous helicopter (not counting hard landings) — the last, in which four Indian Army personnel perished, was in April in India’s North-East. A court of inquiry has been ordered into the incident. R.I.P. pilots Thomas, S.P. Singh and technician Manoj Soin.
