A helicopter crashed or crash-landed in the Shiv Ghar Dhar area of Udhampur district on Tuesday. A senior police officer said initial reports suggested it was an Army chopper.
A search team has been rushed to the area, but more than hour would be needed to reach the spot.
The officer said the chopper either crashed or crash-landed on a hill. “Search parties have been rushed to the area, but it will take around one and a half hour to reach there by foot. Dense fog in the area is making it difficult for the searchers to pinpoint exact location,” he added.
DIG, Udhampur Reasi Range Suleman Choudhary, said, “We got information and dispatched a police team towards the Shiv Garh Dhar.”
He said due to excess fog it was yet to be clearly established where the helicopter crash or crash-landed.
