A private chopper carrying six people, including former corporate lobbyist Niira Radia, made an emergency landing on Saturday at a playground in Gopeshwar en route to Badrinath, officials said.

All passengers are safe, revenue official SL Rangad said.

A Heritage Aviation helicopter with six people onboard, including Radia, made an emergency landing at Gopeshwar stadium due to bad weather on way to Badrinath, he said.
