These are the photos of the tragedy of Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhar Reddy, late chief minister of Andhra Pradesh. Dr.Y. S. Rajasekhar Reddy died in a helicopter crash in Nallamala forest in Kurnool district of Andra Pradesh on September 2, 2009. He and his helicopter along with 4 more people including 2 pilots were missing for about twenty four hours after the helicopter left from Begumpet Airport at 9 AM. Around 9:30 AM the helicopter lost touch with the air traffic control while flyging over Nallamala forests. Then the rescue teams including more than 10 helicopters and 5 thousand army men searched the Nallamala forests in vain. Then finally Russian made Sukhoy aeroplane of Indian Air Force was employed to trace out the helicopter. Next day analysis of the photos from the fighter plane showed that helicopter crashed on a hill in Nallamala forest.
