5 people trapped in flash floods rescued in Kathua

KATHUA, JULY 20:  District Administration Kathua today rescued five people who were trapped in the flash-floods in Ujh River after a long drawn rescue operation.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

As soon as the reports were received at the District Control Room, Kathua Administration  swung into action and deputed SDRF teams to Khandhwal and Mahi Chack in Block Marheen and Kathua respectively.

As both the spots witnessed high rise of Flash floods, a request to Divisional Commissioner Jammu was made by Deputy Commissioner  Rahul Yadav for immediate deputing of Chopper to rescue the trapped persons from overflowing rivulets.

An Indian Air-force chopper was pressed into action to airlift the stuck persons.

Two sorties of IAF Chopper were conducted and 5 persons (4 from  Khandhwal and 1 from Mahi Chack) were successfully  rescued in a swift operation.
