Two pilots were injured after an Army helicopter force-landed near Patnitop in Udhampur of Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday. The pilots were being evacuated, an Army spokesperson said, adding further details were being ascertained.

“Today, during a training sortie in the Patnitop area, the Indian Army Cheetah Helicopter crash-landed in the Shiv Garh Dhar area in Udhampur district,” the Army added.

The officer said the chopper either crashed or crash-landed on a hill. “Search parties have been rushed to the area, but it will take around one and a half hour to reach there by foot. Dense fog in the area is making it difficult for the searchers to pin point exact location,” he added.
