A chopper with Uttarakhand chief minister Vijay Bahuguna on board on Saturday landed at a wrong place--on a college ground in Uttarkashi district, a senior police official said.


"The pilot mistook the Mori Inter college ground for the venue where the chief minister was to address a public meeting and landed there," Uttarkashi SP Rajiv Swarup told PTI.

Attributing the faux pas to a "lack of coordination", he said the pilot soon realised his mistake and the chopper took off again immediately for the right venue located nearby.

The chief minister was actually on way to Dauni in the district to address a public meeting in support of his son and Congress nominee for forthcoming Tehri Lok Sabha bypoll Saket Bahuguna.
