The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) verified the disappearance of a Pakistan Army aviation chopper on Monday when it was travelling from Quetta to Karachi.

The military’s media wing explained on Twitter that the aviation helicopter had lost communication with air traffic control while performing a flood relief operation in Lasbela, Balochistan (ATC).

“Six individuals were on board, including Commander 12 Corps who was supervising flood relief operations in Balochistan,” the tweet said, adding that a search operation is underway.

Corp Commander Quetta Lieutenant General Sarfaraz Ali, who was overseeing the province’s flood relief efforts, was also on board.

The severe rains that have devastated the province and killed 147 people are currently keeping the civil administration and the Pakistan Army busy with relief efforts.

Major Syed was the helicopter’s pilot and Major Talha served as his co-pilot. Brigadier Amjad, Director-General of the Coast Guards, Brigadier Khalid, and chief naik Mudassir were also present.

After the event, the district administration reported that a helicopter had crashed near the Windar area’s Sassi Punnu Shrine, although the ISPR has not yet confirmed whether it was the same aircraft.
