They didn't mention the reason of the crash?

Wishes of speed recovery to the groom.

I too hope he recovers from his injuries. But let this be a lesson to everyone to send invitations through the mail.

I hope he recovers soon. However the defenceoffice of India should investigate the reason for the crash in order to avoid same accident or events in the future.
