The Indian Army recently turned into a saviour of twelve-year old boy who fell into a river in the Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir. While trying to to go to school on the other side of the river, he tried to cross it by walking across a narrow, slippery plank. However, he lost his balance and slipped, and fell into the rough currents of the river.
Quickly the officers of the Indian Army spotted the boy and immediately came to his rescue. He was brought to safety, drenched and shaken.
This should come as an eye opener to people throwing stones during protests.
This is not the first time that the Army came to the rescue of the people in Jammu and Kashmir. Two years back, Army conducted its ‘Mission Sahayata’ with troops working tirelessly to rescue people trapped in flooded villages, isolated houses and multi-storied buildings in the inundated areas all over Kashmir.
In the rescue operation, the Army evacuated 11,000 people to safety by deploying 100 columns of troops in flood-hit areas of the state.
