  • CM Fadnavis helicopter force-lands in Nashik was overloaded with extra passengers

MOMENTS after it took off, a helicopter carrying Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, a cabinet minister and two others had to make a forced landing in Nashik on Saturday morning, reportedly due to overloading of the chopper.

The chopper had apparently become overloaded and could not fly with the extra weight, so Fadnavis's cook and his bags were off-loaded.

Senior officials said there were four persons in the helicopter, including the Chief Minister, Irrigation Minister Girish Mahajan, the CM's assistant and cook. The private chopper took off again successfully for its scheduled journey after offloading one of the passengers and some luggage, the police said.

An official from the state civil aviation department said, "As the helicopter was unable to get the required altitude to fly, some luggage was also offloaded".

Scrapping Pence-Abbas talks 'counterproductive': White House aide
More than 15 injuries were reported at a hospital in the northern Gaza Strip as a result of Israeli shelling of various locations. Abbas said Trump has disqualified the United States from its traditional role as peace broker in the Middle East conflict.

On July 7, before taking off in a helicopter from Alibaug, Fadnavis narrowly missed being struck by the chopper's tail rotor, when the pilot started the engines before the chief minister could board the aircraft.

Seeking to downplay the incident, they added that the chopper took off safely, it was a routine practice and not a major issue since Fadnavis travelled by the same aircraft. As Fadnavis was to attend an event in Aurangabad, the BJP chartered a EC 135 helicopter belonging to Indiabulls from Bengaluru.

After these incidents, the state government chose to buy two new helicopters; one for the CM and the other for Naxal-infested Gadchiroli.
