The Defense Ministry had earlier announced the investigation of the three services to investigate the causes of the helicopter crash that killed the Chief of the Defense Staff, General Bipin Rawat, his wife Madhulika and 11 soldiers.
The investigation into the three services will be led by Indian Air Force Air Officer Training Command, Air Marshal Manvendra Singh, one of its most experienced helicopter pilots with more than 6,600 flight hours on different types. It is reasonable to assume that his committee will also recruit helicopter experts from the other two services.
The statement was released by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh in both Houses of Parliament on December 9.
