Nitish’s chopper makes emergency landing

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and two JD(U) leaders had a close shave today.

Gidhaur (Bihar): Bihar Chief Minister Nitish
Kumar along with two senior JD(U) leaders had a close shave
today when his chartered helicopter took off from Gidhaur in
Jamui district with its door open.

Capt Raman and Capt Ravi, the pilots of the helicopter
which was also carrying state Food Minister Narendra Singh and
JD(U) national spokesman Shivanand Tiwari, noticed the left
door open and immediately touched down, Superintendent of
Police (Jamui), Vinod Kumar said.

The pilots and ground crew later checked the four-seater
helicopter and closed the door before taking off again, the SP
said.

Kumar, accompanied by Singh and Tiwari, was returning
from Gidhaur after meeting the family members of former Union
Minister Digvijay Singh, who passed away in London last week.

Additional Director General of Police (Security) A S
Nimbran rushed to the state hangar after being informed about
the incident.

An inquiry into the matter was being conducted by
Additional Chief Pilot of the state Civil Aviation department
Capt Dipak Kumar Singh.
