Shivpuri: The helicopter carrying
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to a
village function lost its way due to a dust haze for nearly 55
minutes, officials said on Sunday.

The helicopter carrying Chouhan took off from Shivpuri at
3.15 pm last evening and was supposed to reach Dulara village
in 15 minutes. But, it lost its way due to a dust haze in the
sky for nearly 55 minutes before landing at the village, they
said.

The haze was due to a dust storm in neighbouring
Rajasthan, close to Shivpuri.

The Chief Minister reached the function of Dhamad
community about 40 minutes late, officials said. At the mass
marriage function, Chouhan referred to the incident in his
speech, they added.
