A helicopter of Bangladesh Air Force 'MI-171' with 16 passengers on board made an emergency landing inside the camp of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) in Sreemangal yesterday  morning, reports UNB.

Four people, including Flight Lieutenant Mehedi Hasan, senior warrant officer Farhad Hossain and Major General Khaled Md Abdullah of Kuwait, were injured during the emergency landing and they were primarily treated at Sreemangal Health Complex, said its residential medical officer Dr Md Mohsin.

The injured were sent to Moulvibazar Sadar Hospital, he added. Contacted, Noor Islam, assistant director of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), said the helicopter of Bangladesh Air Force 'MI-171' with 16 passengers made the emergency landing inside the BGB camp, some 100-feet away from its designated helipad, in Sreemangal around 10:10 am due to technical glitches.

"Two pilots -- Wing Commander Omar and Flight Lieutenant Mehedi Hasan -- and all the 16 passengers came out from the helicopter safely after the emergency landing," he added.

The copter took off from Tejgaon in Dhaka at 09:20 am.
