The incident occurred due to helicopter boom malfunction. As the soldiers start to descent, the rope is seen slipping off the helicopter which results in a free fall.
Three paratroopers have been injured while practising slithering operations from a rope hanging from a Dhruv advanced light helicopter (ALH) here. The troops stationed near the "drop" zone rushed to the spot and ferried the injured to the hospital, officials said. The slithering operations, which involve troops slipping down a rope usually from a helicopter, is a method used to drop troops in an area of action when a chopper cannot land. The ceremony is held every year on January 15 since 1949.
Meanwhile, an inquiry has been ordered to ascertain how the accident took place. "A team from Hindustan Aeronautics Limited that manufactures the chopper is in Delhi for investigation" he said.
