IAF copter hit by bullet

Drass, July 26
An IAF helicopter flying over Doda in Jammu and Kashmir was hit by a bullet following which high security arrangements have been made, an IAF official said today.

“High security and precautions are being taken while flying in Jammu and Kashmir,” Air Officer Commanding in Chief (AOC-In-C) Air Marshal J Chouhan said today.

Referring to the incident, Air Marshal Chouhan, however, said it has not been re-established that it was shot (by militants).

“The hole which appeared on the tail was that of a bullet. It was flying over Doda,” Air Marshal Chouhan told the visiting PTI correspondent after laying wreaths on the Kargil war memorial here today. — PTI
