According to the Defence PRO in Guwahati, the accident site was not accessible by road, and a rescue squad was dispatched.
He claimed that the modern light helicopter was on routine sorties while transporting Army soldiers. The event happened at 10:43 am, and the official reported that a search effort is in progress.

The crash site is in a mountainous area, therefore it will take some time for the search and rescue crew to get there, according to Upper Siang SP Jummar Basar. This is the second Army helicopter crash that has occurred in the state this month.
In Jammu and Kashmir, a second Cheetah helicopter crashed in March not far from the Line of Control. The pilot also passed away in this tragedy.
One of the two pilots on board was killed earlier this month when an Indian Army Cheetah helicopter crashed in the Tawang area of Arunachal Pradesh close to the border with China, according to a defence spokesperson.
