THE HELICOPTER carrying Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia lost its way in the ravines of Morena district on Saturday.  A villager, who was made to board the helicopter, helped it land at the destination.

The helicopter lost its way when Scindia and Gurjar Samaj president Avatar Singh Bhadana were on their way to Badapura village in Morena district to meet relatives of the five youths killed by the Gadaria gang recently. The helicopter hovered in the sky for about 20 minutes before landing at Chandrapura village. Hari, a resident of the village, boarded it and showed way to the plane.  A party leader later dropped Hari at his village in his vehicle.

During their meeting with the victims’ relatives, Scindia and Bhadana took the responsibility of upbringing and education of a child each of two deceased.
