In a tragic incident today a military helicopter crashed because of ‘technical reasons’ in practically the hot bed of armed conflict, South Waziristan. All eight passengers on board were killed including Major General Javed Sultan, the recently promoted as commanding officer of Kohat garrison as well as two brigadiers.
However, The Insider Brief reports sources that the helicopter was one of the brand new Bell 412 [wikipedia] helicopters provided to Pakistan by the United States. They also state that militants in South Waziristan have been using anti-aircraft missiles. Sources narrate further that the helicopter had been visiting a unit in South Waziristan and was on its way back when, within 3 minutes of taking off, it came down.
I think there must be more to what meets the eye and some how one can definitely speculate that this helicopter was shot down, though ISPR continues to blame it on a technical fault, but considering the botched up cover story during the BB assassination, I have lost faith in these media people
