New Delhi/Islamabad: Four Indian Army officers were detained in Pakistan after an army helicopter they were in strayed across the border into Pakistani-administered Kashmir, an officer said here.

"Probably due to pilot error, the Chetak helicopter strayed into PoK (Pakistani Occupied Kashmir)," the Indian Army officer said.

The official said contact has been made with Pakistan to get back the helicopter and its passengers.

The helicopter carried three officers, including the two pilots, and a junior commissioned officer. It had taken off from Leh in Jammu and Kashmir's Ladakh region.
