B Aravind, 27-year-old man from Chennai, died in a paragliding accident in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu district on Monday when he was honeymooning with his wife R Preethi, the police said
Manali superintendent of Police Gaurag Singh said the accident occurred at Dobhi near the popular tourist hotspot of Manali where the couple went paragliding. The couple got married hardly ten days ago.
Preethi took the flight first and returned safe. Arvind, however, fell off the plane after his seat belt came off. He plunged to death in front of his wife. Paragliding pilot Haru Ram escaped with injuries as the glider lurched and crashed after Arvind fell off.
Himachal Sports Minister Govind Singh told reporters in Shimla that arrangements were being to send the body to Chennai.
