In the Upper Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh, a helicopter belonging to the Indian Army crashed on Friday close to Singging village. A search and rescue effort is under way after the HAL Rudra helicopter crashed close to Singging.
About 25 miles separated the crash site from Tuting’s main office. Because there is no road access to the disaster site, it is challenging for the rescue crew to conduct search and rescue operations.
