NEW DELHI — An Indian army helicopter carrying the country’s military chief crashed Wednesday in southern Tamil Nadu state, the air force said.

There was no immediate confirmation of the number of people on the helicopter. But local news channels showed a flight manifest that displayed the names of nine people as passengers, including Rawat’s wife and other senior defense officials.

Rawat is the most senior official in the Indian military. He is also an adviser to the Defense Ministry. He assumed the newly created post last year after retiring as army chief.

The Press Trust of India news agency said the Mi-17V5 helicopter was on its way from an air force base to the army defense services college when it crashed near Coonoor in Tamil Nadu.
