A special chartered plane carrying the body of sikh sect leader Sant Rama Nand, who died in an attack in Vienna, will arrive here tomorrow night, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said.

The aircraft will also bring home Dera Sachkhand Ballan chief Niranjan Dass, who was injured in the incident on May 24. "We have sent a special plane to Vienna. The plane will return either tomorrow night or early Thursday morning," Badal told PTI here.

The 15 seater aircraft, arranged by the state government, has senior state officials besides two doctors and nurses on board.

A special helicopter has also been arranged to fly Rama Nand's body from the national capital to the Dera headquarters in Jalandhar for last rites.

The step was taken keeping in view the sentiments of people of Punjab, he said.
