Washington/New Delhi, Sep 12: The flight path taken by two American MH-47 Chinook helicopters to Abbottabad in Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden in May last year has triggered a controversy with questions being raised as to whether they flew over the Indian air space. 





A just-published book, containing a first-hand account of the raid on the Al Qaida leader's hideout in the Pakistan garrison town near Islamabad, contains a map showing the flight path of the two helicopters after they took off from Jalalabad in Afghanistan in the dead of the night on May one.  

The map shows the helicopters crossing Pakistan's eastern border with India before looping around and approaching Abbottabad from the South East. The book—‘No Easy Day: The Autobiography of a Navy SEAL'—is written by one of the US Navy SEALS Matt Bissonnette, who participated in the operation, using pseudonym “Mark Owen”.
