Search teams rushed to the spot of a helicopter crash in J&K’s Udhampur district

On Tuesday, a helicopter crashed or crash-landed in Udhampur’s Shiv Ghar Dhar region. Initial reports stated it was an Army helicopter, according to a senior police official. A search team has been dispatched to the region, but it will take more than an hour to reach the location.

According to the police, the chopper either crashed or landed on a hill. “Search teams have been dispatched to the region, but walking there will take around an hour and a half. Because of the dense fog in the area, it’s impossible for searchers to pinpoint the specific location,” he added.

“We got information and despatched a police squad towards the Shiv Garh Dhar,” said Suleman Choudhary, DIG, Udhampur Reasi Range.

He stated that the location of the helicopter accident or crash-landing has not to be determined due to excessive fog.
