Army official from Chinar Corps said that on Tuesday night a frantic call for help was received by Army Camp Tekipura, Lolab from Munir Ahmed Lone resident of Anderbug, that his car has felt into a ditch filled with water.

“Army Camp Tekipura quickly swung into action and dispatched a team to the location. Two ladies and children stuck in the vehicle were quickly rescued by the team. With heavy rainfall making the area slushy, the recovery of the vehicle became a herculean task. With the help of a JCB and Caspier vehicle, the car was recovered after two hours of constant effort by the team,” he said.

As per the statement issued by the Army, the local residents hailed the efforts put by Army personnel to save precious lives.

In another incident in Sogam, Lolab, Army averted serious calamity due to its prompt action in response to a call for help regarding a fire that broke out in Sogam Market during wee hours on Wednesday.

“The fire which was presumably initiated by an electric short circuit spread quickly to three shops of Faizal Shah, Hilal Ahmed Pir, and Javed Ahmed Pir.

The Rescue team under Subedar Sanjay Kumar, dispatched by Army Camp Gujjarpatti quickly reached the site along with a water dowser and firefighting equipment. The team assisted by local fire tenders toiled for about an hour to douse the fire.” [KNT]
