New Delhi: An Indian Military Training Team (IMTRAT) helicopter crashed in Eastern Bhutan on Friday, killing the two pilots on board – one from the Indian Army and the other from the Bhutanese Army.

The pilot of the Indian Army who died has been identified as Lieutenant Colonel Rajneesh Parmar — his birthday was on Friday. The Bhutanese pilot, training with the Indian Army, was identified as Captain Kalzang Wangdi.

According to sources, the crash occurred around 1 pm near Yongfulla in Bhutan. They said the helicopter, a Chetak, went out of radio and visual contact around that time. It was on its way from Khirmu in Arunanchal Pradesh to Yongfulla on duty.

The ground-level search and rescue operations were launched immediately and the wreckage has been located, officials said.
