Three Indian Army soldiers fall from Dhruv chopper during rehearsals

Three Indian Army soldiers fall from Dhruv chopper during rehearsals”

The rope that the jawans were using to eject from the helicopter broke and they fell on the ground.

The heart-wrenching video which went viral on social media, shows the soldiers descending from the chopper while holding the rope that is seen attached to the helicopter.

"No serious injuries to any of the three soldiers".

Following the incident, the Army has temporarily suspended all such slithering operations.

Though the actual reason behind the incident is not clear yet but as per an Army official, the incident happened due to boom malfunction and not due to the rope that was used for the operation. The army jawans are undergoing treatment at Army Hospital Research And Referral in New Delhi, IBT reported.

An inquiry has been called into the matter and the investigation is in progress.

A Dhruv twin-engine helicopter flew the soldiers to the designated "drop" zone and as three soldiers slithered down the rope dangling from the helicopter the boom supporting the rope reportedly developed snag.

According to reports, the "slithering operation" was part of the "Army Day" rehearsals taking place in Army's parade ground in the national capital.

"Slithering operation ceases for all ALH with immediate effect after the accident".

General Cariappa took over from General Butcher on January 15, 1949.
