Uttarkashi (Uttarakhand) [India], Aug 23 (ANI): A helicopter carrying relief material to flood-ravaged Mori-Arakot areas crash-landed near a river in Tikochi area here on Friday, said District Magistrate Ashish Chauhan.
People on board, including the pilot and co-pilot, have sustained minor injuries.
