Mumbai: A helicopter carrying Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar was forced to return to the helipad soon after take-off from Ahmednagar in Central Maharashtra around noon Sunday.

Helicopter carrying Pawar returns within minutes of take-off

The NCP said the chopper had to return as the pilot had forgotten to take some important papers, but local sources said it returned as a seatbelt had not been fastened properly.

Sources in the local administration as well as district unit of the NCP said the chopper had to return within minutes of the take-off as a seatbelt was seen "dangling outside".

"Having thought important papers left behind, the pilot landed in a minute after takeoff from Ahmednagar helipad today," NCP said in a tweet, adding that it was done at the "insistence of Saheb (Pawar)" and there was nothing alarming.
