A chopper carrying Chief Minister of the western Indian state of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday crash-landed in Latur district after getting entangled in wires.
Though aviation officials said that the U.S.-made Sikorsky helicopter was "badly damaged" in the incident that took place in the state's Latur district after it got entangled in wires while landing soon after taking off, the chief minister tweeted that he and his team were safe.
"Our helicopter did meet with an accident in Latur but me and my team is absolutely safe and OK. Nothing to worry," he tweeted.
According to the chief minister, the accident occurred due to technical glitch.
"When it took off, there was an emergency landing, an accident, but we are safe. No one is injured. We are safe with the blessings of god and Maharashtra," he told the media.
Local TV channels showed footage of the damaged white-colored chopper lying on the ground in Latur, with senior officials inspecting it.
A probe has been ordered into the crash, the reports said, quoting aviation officials.
