Yogi’s chopper makes  emergency landing  following bird hit

Monday, 27 June 2022 | PNS | Varanasi

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s helicopter had to make an emergency landing at the police lines in Varanasi just a few minutes after take-off on Sunday. 

After his two-day visit to Varanasi, Yogi was leaving for Sultanpur to pay tributes to former MLA Surya Bhan Singh but the helicopter had to make an emergency landing following a bird hit. 

According to Divisional Commissioner Deepak Agrawal, the chopper was hit by a bird and the pilot, in a bid to avoid any problem, decided to make the emergency landing in Varanasi.

District Magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said the CM and other staff were safe and they left for Lucknow from a state plane. After the incident, the CM’s proposed visit to Sultanpur was postponed and he returned to the circuit house before leaving for the Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport in Babatpur. There he waited for some time for the state plane to arrive. Around 11 am, the CM left for Lucknow.

Earlier, the local ministers, public representatives and other officers made emergency arrangements at the police lines and the CM was provided a security cover first on his way to the circuit house and then to the airport.
