Who’s To Blame For The Mi-17 Crash?

Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat perished when an Indian Air Force (IAF) Mi-17V5 helicopter carrying them crashed into a heavily wooded area of the Coonoor ghat in the Nilgiris in western Tamil Nadu.

Many Ghat Roads can be found in the Nilgiris District of Tamil Nadu, Southern India.

Coonoor Ghat is also known as the Kallar Ghat, as it follows the valley of the Kallar and Coonoor rivers. The Coonoor ghat rises steeply from Mettupalayam and the Coonoor river flows through the deep gorge with sheer cliff faces on both sides.
