New Delhi’s air force chief has confirmed that an Indian helicopter was brought down by one of the country’s own missiles during a skirmish with Pakistan back in February, when the two sides clashed in the skies over Kashmir.
The country’s newly appointed Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Bhadauria has offered the first official ‘mea culpa’ on Friday following a probe into the friendly fire mishap, which killed 6 air force personnel and one civilian on the ground in Kashmir’s Budgam district.
It has been established that the helicopter was hit by our own missile. We have already taken administrative action. Disciplinary action is being taken against two officers.
“We admit that it was a big mistake and necessary steps have been taken so that such incident does not recur,” the air chief added.
They are still struggling with their toilets. Give them another 30 years to finish the job.
To their credit it took only eight months for them to 'fess up.
They knew it all along... someone had to lose their job.
Oh dear, sorry the wrong button was activated. Will do better next time. Lucky for everyone that it was not a nuclear launch. LMAO.
Frightening to think these incompetant bafoons have a nukes...i wish Pakistan Air Force does the whole world a favour and destroy india's nuclear installations...you cant trust an army of donkeys under a war mongering Modi...
Pay attention people, this is what happens when you DONT buy Russian Missiles.
We all know friendly fire happens on a daily basis in the USSA. In a primitive under educated country like India. It should be deemed a miracle, that it does not happen on an hourly basis.........
Truth is stranger than fiction- Mark twain
