GUJRANWALA: The pilot and co-pilot of a Pakistan Air Force gunship helicopter were injured when it crashed in the Cantt area of Gujranwala on Monday, Express News reported.

SHO Cantt said that during the flight a sudden technical failure led to a fire in the helicopter, upon which the two occupants, identified as Major Furqan and Major Imran, attempted to land in an unpopulated area.

They jumped from the helicopter with parachutes before it crashed near a cotton factory, getting away with minor injuries.

The two injured men were taken to CMH Hospital for First Aid.

The Pakistan Army reached the scene of the crash and cordoned off the area.

The ISPR confirmed the gunship helicopter crash.

@Usman: Good points - it goes to show how many Indian trolls are obsessed with Pakistan instead of focusing on issues in their own country.
