Raichur: An army helicopter that was accompanying Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s chopper in Sindhanur was trapped in the mud for some time due to heavy downpour on Tuesday.
After much effort, the helicopter was taken out of the mud, viral videos showed.
Once the Prime Minister had left in his helicopter after addressing a gathering in Sindhanur, a helicopter that was accompanying it started to take off but got stuck in the mud.
Earlier in the day, Congress’ Karnataka unit president D K Shivakumar’s helicopter made an emergency landing at HAL airport after a kite hit the glass of the cockpit.
