Helicopter crash: body recovered from Chenab

JAMMU: A body, purported to be that of a missing Indian Air Force officer, was recovered from the Chenab river, eight days after an MI-17 helicopter carrying four personnel crashed into it in Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir. Officials said here on Sunday that the decomposed body, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, was recovered by a joint search party of the Army, the police, the Air Force and the Navy in the Trungal-Assar area on Saturday.

The body was airlifted here for identification and completion of other formalities, the officials said. The helicopter that crashed into the river on October 30 was carrying four personnel — Wing Commander Rajiv Garg, Flight Lieutenant Y.S. Tomar, Warrant Officer K. Singh, and Sergeant Deepak. Commander Garg’s body was recovered on the same day.

Authorities had launched a search operation to locate the chopper and recover the remaining three bodies, and brought 17 Navy divers from Delhi to assist in the operation. — PTI
