An inquiry in India has revealed that the pilot of a helicopter carrying Defense Chief General Bipin Rawat lost his way due to a sudden change in the weather.

Fourteen people, including General Bipin Rawat and his wife, were killed in the crash, according to AFP. The Indian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Friday that the inquiry had found that the helicopter had not been destroyed due to technical glitches, sabotage or negligence. The Defense Ministry said the investigation team reached a preliminary conclusion after questioning the flight data recorder, cockpit recorder and eyewitnesses.

The helicopter entered the clouds due to an unexpected change in weather and the pilot could not keep his direction. After his retirement as Army Chief on December 31, 2019, the Modi government appointed him as the country's first Chief of Defense Staff, which meant that India still wanted to take advantage of General Rawat's military services for many more years.

Until the Tamil Nadu tragedy, General Bipin Rawat, as Narendra Modi's top military adviser, played a central role in the overall military strategy and especially in the extraordinary situation on India's borders with Pakistan and China. As Chief of Defense, General Rawat has also played a key role in India's defense technology, planning and the National Security Council. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, along with a few other leaders, visited his official residence and paid tributes to him.

General Bipin Rawat is credited with improving the security situation in northeastern India and a successful military operation in neighboring Myanmar, which Indian officials claim has improved law and order in the country.
