Jammu: On a request from civil administration, two columns of the Indian Army were launched to assist civil administration in carrying out rescue operations for civilians of Village Honzar, District Kishtwar (J&K).
The village was caught in a flash flood due to a cloudburst, which led to the sudden rise in water level in the Malu and Nath Nala. Indian Army responded to the situation quickly and launched two columns for the rescue operations.
The Indian Army has also made provision for meals for 100 persons and provided rations. The weather conditions over the village continue to remain adverse, thereby increasing the difficulty in rescue operations.
However rescue and relief efforts are still underway.
