Raipur: A day after helicopter incident, health minister TS Singh Deo described the incident as “rarest of rare”.

Health minister returned from his Ambikapur tour on Monday. Speaking about the incident, Deo told media persons that it was a very rare incident which doesn’t happen which is not common. The glasses of helicopters are manufactured in such a way that it can tolerate high speed gusty wind or a bird strike and doesn’t develop cracks easily.


He said that the pilot took prompt decision and told us that we can’t go further in such a situation and opted for landing. This averted any untoward incident and the landing was quite safe. After landing we saw that the glass is developing more and more cracks turning into a spider-web of cracks.


Meanwhile, the windshield of helicopter carrying health minister TS Singh Deo suddenly developed cracks while landing at village in Surajpur district on Sunday. The minister was on his way to village Dharsedi of Surajpur to review the under construction well collapse incident in which three persons were killed on Saturday evening.
