The Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif expressed sorrow and sadness over the tragic crash of a helicopter.

“Deeply saddened by the loss of 6 military officers including two pilots in the crash of a Pakistan Army helicopter in Harnai, Balochistan,” he tweeted.

“The entire country is in mourning with families who have lost loved ones,” he added.

In the month of March the Pakistan Army aviation helicopter -that was involved in flood relief operations located in the Balochistan region of Lasbela — went in the wrong direction and the remains of the aircraft had been located in a coastal area of Balochistan.

The six police officers and crew members on board survived the crash.
