KARACHI – A Pakistan’s Navy crew member embraced martyrdom on Friday after a helicopter crashed in the Arabian Sea.

The aircraft, PN Sea King, was on routine operation when it crashed, the Navy said in a statement.

Among seven people onboard, three survived and managed to escape the chopper after the crash. Three officials are still missing, for whom a rescue operation is still ongoing.

The martyred officer named SSG-N operator Akhtar Ali, who also took part in a bilateral exercise with Egyptian Special Forces in the past, was laid to rest with honour on Saturday.
