Kashmir Youth Rescues Trapped Soldier

Amidst the mounting tension between the protesters and security forces, a philanthropic incident has come into the light where a soldier mangled inside a damaged vehicle was rescued by Kashmiri youth. An army vehicle with at least 12 soldiers on board met with an accident near the Pantha Chowk-Lasjan on Srinagar bypass road. While few soldiers fled from the vehicle but unfortunately due to low lying tension wires, one of the soldiers couldn’t escape and got mangled inside the vehicle.


The soldier was struck badly inside the damaged vehicle. The other jawans made a lot of attempts to evacuate the jawan. Seeing this, a lot of local Kashmiri youth rushed to the spot and started off with disconnecting the high tension wire and then carried the soldiers to the local hospital in a civilian truck. After a lot of hue and cry and vigorous efforts, the one soldier who was completely mangled inside the vehicle was also evacuated and came out of the vehicle safely, as reported by Times of India.


Many of the passersby recorded the incident which went viral on social media.  Northern Command of Indian Army tweeted,” Army thanked the local youth for the rescue of soldiers stuck in accident vehicle near Pantha Chowk Srinagar.”

Another incident came to light almost a year back when the local people risked their life to rescue Amarnath pilgrims despite curfew restrictions. The Residents carried the injured pilgrims to hospital after a road accident on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway No.1.
