More than 20 hrs on, no clue as to the wherabouts of the chopper. A massive search operation is underway with more than 5000 ground troops and several helicopters pressed into service. ISRO is expected to help with it's real time satellite imagery.
What's making everyone anxious is the fact that the helicopter supposedly went missing over the Nalla Malla forests,a Maoist stronghold.
