Arunachal chopper crash: Soldiers' bodies in cardboard boxes, Army calls it aberration

There was an outrage after bodies of the soldiers killed in the Arunachal Pradesh chopper crash were sent in cardboard boxes. Images of the same surfaced on the social media, but the Army countered it by saying that it was an aberration.

"Seven young men stepped out into the sunshine yesterday to serve their motherland, India. This is how they came home," tweeted former Northern Army commander Lt Gen (Retd) HS Panag, along with the images of the bodies.

This prompted the Army to come out with a tweet saying the wrappin g of the bodies with local resources was an "aberration" and that the fallen soldiers are always given full military honour.

Reacting to the issue, the Army's Additional Directorate General of Public Information tweeted that the carriage of the mortal remains in body bags, wooden boxes and coffins will be ensured.

"Fallen soldiers (are) always given full military honour. Carriage of mortal remains in body bags, wooden boxes, coffins will be ensured," it said.

The photographs were taken when the bodies were in Guwahati, as per an official. Lt Gen (Retd) Panag said proper military body bags must be used to transport bodies from forward locations until ceremonial coffins were available. Several people on twitter also expressed their anguish after the images surfaced.

Five IAF personnel, including two pilots, and two armymen were killed when the Mi-17 V5 chopper crashed on Friday morning in Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh.
