PM Modi, who went to Nepal to attend SAARC summit, gifted an Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) to the military of Nepal as a gesture of strengthening ties between the two countries. "This will add to Nepal's shield of protection," Mr Modi said. The Dhruv Mark 3 has 14 members seating capacity. With sound features, the helicopter has been equipped with rocket, air-to-ground and air-to-air missiles and a gun turret. It costs nearly Rs. 60-80 crore and is exported to SAARC countries like Maldives etc.
