A meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) is being held on Thursday to condole the death of Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Dorjee Khandu.

Party sources said that the meeting, the second of the newly-reconstituted working committee, would start at 12.00pm.

The first meeting of the new committee was held on March 5, a day after its reconstitution, to condole the death of party veteran Arjun Singh.

Khandu went missing on Saturday on a flight from Tawang along with four others. Their bodies and the wreckage of their helicopter which crashed in bad weather were located on Thursday after a five-day search.

This is the second death of a chief minister in similar circumstances in two years after the death of Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy in a helicopter crash in Nallamalla ranges in the state in September 2009.
