Two Army jawans were injured during slithering operation.

A video that has gone viral on social media shows a total of four soldiers sliding down the chopper as part of the slithering operation using a rope which is attached to the aircraft.

Army Day is celebrated on January 15 every year in remembrance of Lieutenant General KM Cariappa's taking over as the first Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army from the British General Sir Francis Butcher.

The "insertion" and "extraction" of commandos is generally carried out by the helicopters in special operations.

The drill is practised relentlessly as stealth and speed is of paramount importance to retain the element of surprise.

The incident occurred due to helicopter boom malfunction. All of a sudden, the rope gets detached and the three men come crashing down, the Financial Express reported. During their practice, all three personnel fell on the ground after their rope snapped.

The jawans were rushed to the hospital immediately.

Sources added that as a matter of protocol, all slithering operations from the ALH Dhruv will remain suspended till a probe in the incident is completed.

The Army has more than 100 Dhruv helicopters deployed in all the operational areas including the heights of Jammu & Kashmir and the North-East.
