Srinagar: Chinar Corps conducted a swift emergency evacuation of an ailing elderly lady, Sardar Beewa w/o Mir Mohd from Jabri village, Boniyar Tehsil, Baramulla district, to Primary Health Care (PHC) Centre in Boniyar today.

“In the early morning hours, the Indian Army detachment at Paro proactively acted on a distress call from Mir Mohd, a resident of the remote Jabri village, who desperately sought an evacuation of his 80-year-old wife, who had developed severe fever, vomiting, and abdominal pain,” said PRO (Defence) Srinagar.

“Jabri Village is located along a steep gradient, from which evacuation during heavy snowfall, is extremely challenging,” the PRO said.

“The Chinar Corps warriors walked through knee-deep snow and reached the ailing lady’s home. They carried the aged lady on their back, to minimize injury to the patient, due to the mountainous nature of the tracks, the steep gradient involved, and the heavy snowfall conditions. On reaching Paro, the lady was swiftly shifted to a waiting Army ambulance and successfully evacuated to PHC, Boniyar,” he said.
