A Chetak helicopter of the Indian Air Force (IAF) made an emergency landing in a village in Siddipet in Telangana after it developed a technical snag. The helicopter was on a routine training sortie when it developed the snag. 

The IAF helicopter took off from Hakimpet base of Hyderabad on Wednesday.

Earlier in July this year, a Chetak Helicopter of the Indian Navy also developed a technical snag while it was on a routine sortie. The Navy helicopter had to make a precautionary landing at a beach near Alappuzha.

There were no casualties due to the emergency landing. The Navy helicopter also did not suffer any damages.
