Group Captain Varun was admitted to a hospital in Wellington with serious burn injuries on Wednesday. The officials have said that his condition is still critical. On Thursday, he was shifted to Sulur in an ambulance and subsequently flown to Bengaluru for better treatment.   

Group Captain Varun was on board the Russian-made helicopter as the liaison officer for the visit of General Rawat to the Defence Services Staff College in Wellington. He was posted as an instructor at the institution.  

The Group Captain received CDS General Rawat at the Sulur airbase from where they were heading to Wellington in the ill-fated Mi 17 V5. 

An inquiry into the incident has been already ordered by the IAF which will be led by Air Marshal Manvendra Singh, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Training Command.
