Would you havw reacted the same if it was one of your family member?
well in all probability I'll never allow my family to use anything substantial made in India.. not sure of quality honestly.. one should not take chance of their family health with poor quality equiments.. not good.. quality should be improved but in corrupt & hungry India quality can never be good..
perhaps they used some spare part made in
and this is the chopper that is much talked about in MAKE IN INDIA, My request is pls dont make it in india. Continue buying russian or US choppers
This was downed by pakistani anti defence missiles.

Pakistan's News Channel which is streaming live on YOUTUBE is telling that They have given Free REPUBLIC DAY GIFT to INDIA. They are cming that they had planned this attack on chopper..
Please don't fall for fake news
India needs to look very carefully at the quality being produced, a braveheart lost his life ! Dhruv heli’s have had issues in the past also and hardly any country wants to buy these ! RIP brave pilot
Eye witness said, its crash landed due to wings caught in wires while landing.
