Mumbai: An Indian Air Force (IAF) MI-17 helicopter made an emergency landing on a ground in the congested central business district of Bandra-Kurla Complex here on Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

There were no casualties. There were at least four airmen on board who officials said were safe. The helicopter did not suffer any damage. The chopper was on a routine training sortie. It suddenly experienced some technical problems, compelling it to make the landing at the MMRDA ground, the heart of a civilian suburb.

"The helicopter carried out a precautionary landing. All crew and the chopper are safe," an official said, adding that the chopper was scheduled to land at the IAF base in Colaba, south Mumbai. Thousands of civilians trooped out of their offices to catch a glimpse of the unusual arrival from the sky. Mumbai Police cordoned off the area.
