    I have been to Nandi hills and its quite crowded on weekends. No one cannot enter the area without buying tickets.This is a serious issue and shouldn't be buried.

    We need to wait for the details before we can start speculating anything about it.

    RIP to the pilot.

    RIP to the pilot. I am sure his inputs were crucial in the development of the LCA.

    Lets not get paki like CTs here. It can be a case of mugging, or some other kind of fights.

    cause of his murder could be anything. I sincerely hope that its some personal issue or mugging but nothing can be ruled out at the moment. Hope police gets a breakthrough quickly. He was a great asset and no stone should be left unturned to catch culprits.

    Sad news. I agree with Iamanidiot, places like HAL, DRDO, etc., are infested with politics and power struggles.

    The news report has nothing to suggest that it was a suicide. How did thee police come to such a conclusion???? Saw this man in a Discovery channel show once. RIP.

    You know Armand - you may be right - or he might have been driven to suicide for the same reasons - either way, another black day for Indian defense.
