The mortal remains of Group Captain Varun Singh, the lone survivor of the IAF helicopter crash earlier this month that killed Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat and 12 others, would be flown to Bhopal by a service aircraft on Thursday, IAF sources said.


A decorated air warrior, Group Captain Varun Singh died at the Air Force’s Command Hospital in Bengaluru on Wednesday, a week after he was seriously injured in the crash near Coonoor in Tamil Nadu.

The mortal remains would be moved from the hospital Thursday at 10 am to Air Force station Yelahanka, where wreaths would be laid as a mark of respect to the departed, sources said.
