Bangalore: Congress Rajya Sabha MP Anil Lad`s
personal helicopter on Thursday made an emergency landing in Andhra
Pradesh due to inclement weather when he was on his way.

Lad told PTI that he was flying to Bangalore from Sandur in
Bellary district when the weather suddenly turned bad,
following which his helicopter made an emergency landing
at 4.10 pm in Dharmavaram.

"Emergency landing was carried out as I decided not to take
any risk, especially in the wake of spate of chopper crashes
involving some VIPs," he said.

However, the weather soon cleared up, after which the
helicopter resumed the flight and landed in Bangalore at 6.10
pm, Lad said.
