An Army chopper crashed near Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district on Monday. The accident took place at 11:15 am, sources say. The two pilots of the helicopter have survived the crash.

The Chetak helicopter developed a technical snag after which it crash landed, Army officials told news agency PTI.

The chopper was on a routine flight. The crash took place in the Rudkhud area of the district.

"Both the pilots are safe and out of danger," said the Army, adding that enquiry into the whole incident has started, news agency IANS reported.

Last year in October, a helicopter of the Indian Army carrying then chief of the force's Northern Command Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh and other officers had made an emergency landing following a technical glitch in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch.
