An three-seater helicopter “Squirell” of Pakistan Army Aviation after flying from aviation’s Dhamyal Base Rawalpindi developed some technical fault which forced the pilot to make emergency landing near Lehtrar Road/Burma Bridge (Burma Pull) Korang Nullah, in Islamabad

All the three personnel on board including Pilot, Co-pilot and a crew member remained unhurt during the landing but the helicopter suffered a partial damage at tail end and window on impact.

The ICT police officials including DIG Bin Yameen visited the site of the landing that was cordoned off by the Elite-force and assisted by traffic wardens. According to a DAWN news report, the fault was removed after a five-hour repair work, and then the helicopter was flown back to its base.
