Ladakh, Jun 8: Government of India has ordered Court of Inquiry into an incident where an Indian Air Force (IAF) chopper made a hard landing near Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO) in Eastern Ladakh.
Media reports said that at least three IAF personnel were in the helicopter when the incident took place. Report said that Indian Air Force’s Advanced Light Helicopter Dhruv made a hard landing near DBO, prompting government to initiate an inquiry into the incident.
The incident has been taken seriously as the landing spot is just north of Depsang Plains, which is one of the friction points in the over year-long standoff between India and China and it is strategically significant for India, as is just a few kilometres short of the Karakoram Pass in the north.
Pertinently, the Chinese military has a strong military presence, on its side, opposite the Depsang-DBO sector and is blocking Indian troops from accessing its traditional patrolling limits. (KNT)
