New Delhi: The inability of ISRO to locate the
debris of the helicopter that carried late Arunachal Pradesh
Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu came in for questioning on Monday
from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.



When scientists from ISRO called on the Prime Minister, he
referred to the tragedy of April 30 in Arunachal Pradesh and
asked how the satellites could not pinpoint the exact location
of the chopper crash, sources said.

The scientists led by ISRO chief K Radhakrishnan explained
that the satellites were concentrating on a different
direction.



After Khandu`s chopper went missing, services of ISRO were
called to trace it but it could not pinpoint the location.



Sources said the Prime Minister told the scientists that
the country looked forward to their continued specialised
services.

Singh congratulated the scientists for the successful
launch of three satellites by PSLV last month.
