UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s helicopter made an emergency landing, at the Reserve Police lines ground in Varanasi after it suffered a bird-hit on Sunday.

The CM had arrived in Varanasi on Saturday evening for a review meet. Around 9.05am, on Sunday, he reached the police lines ground and boarded a helicopter for Lucknow.

Soon after it took off, the helicopter made an emergency landing following a bird-hit.

District magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma said that the CM’s helicopter landed safely at Reserve Police Lines ground. He later boarded a state plane to Lucknow from Varanasi’s Lal Bahadur Shastri International airport.
