Bhopal, Apr 29: A helicopter carrying Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan "disappeared" for around fifteen minutes today, sending officials in a tizzy before it landed safely in Katni, an official said.
"The chopper carrying Chouhan, BJP state chief Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan and state Minister Gyan Singh, which was supposed to land at a school in Katni around 9.45 am, went ahead of the helipad and suddenly disappeared," Katni District Collector Prakash Jangre told PTI over phone.
The concerned officials on ground sprung into action. The helicopter returned after some time and landed safely at 10 am, he said. The Chief Minister had gone to pay last respects to former Madhya Pradesh Minister Satyendra Pathak, who passed away yesterday after a prolonged illness.
