The Indian Army in close coordination with the Indian Air Force (IAF) evacuated a pregnant woman in critical condition from Nawapachi area of Kishtwar district.
She was evacuated in an IAF helicopter to Kishtwar town where the woman is being treated in the District Hospital, said a defence spokesman on Thursday.
The Indian Army has been helping the people towards reducing their hardships in this challenging area which witnesses harsh weather and extremely difficult living conditions, more so during winters wherein the area remains totally cut off due to closure of land route.
The Indian Army has always been rendering life saving humanitarian assistance to the people apart from conducting counter terrorist operations in the region. The locals expressed their gratitude towards the Indian Army and the IAF for this noble life saving effort in a quick time frame.
