On Friday, a photo was widely circulated in which Rapist Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was seen flying in an AW-139 helicopter to the jail in Rohtak. Meanwhile, another photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi using the same helicopter emerged. Users alleged that the helicopter is owned by the Adani Group.
In response to this, a spokesperson for the Adani Group told BOOM in an email: “This is to clarify that Adani Group has never ever owned or leased any Helicopter. Therefore, this news coverage stating that Adani Group leased AW139 Helicopter support to any political party or airlifting of Mr. Gurmeet Singh is an absolute lie and a figment of the motivated imagination.”
“This news article seems to have been made purely to sensationalized and malign the public image of one of the most respected corporate Group of India namely the Adani Group.”
The spokesperson further added that they had placed an order to purchased an AW 139 in 2011, but it was canceled. They did not own any helicopter then and none now.
Actually, Janta Ka Reporter published an article, titled, “Questions raised on rapist Gurmeet Singh allegedly using ‘Adani’s’ helicopter, also used by PM Modi.”
What Is AW-139?
AugustaWestland-139 is not the registration number, it is the model number of the helicopter. Manufactured by Italy’s AgustaWestland S.p.A., it is a 15-seat medium-sized twin-engined helicopter.
