Srinagar, Dec 30: The Indian Army received a distress call from Asha Worker in Danmi requesting urgent medical assistance for a pregnant lady who was in critical condition. Due to heavy snowfall roads were completely blocked and no civil ambulance could reach.

Soon after the birth of the baby, the woman developed some complications for which she needed to be evacuated immediately to SDH Kupwara for surgery. As the Army team was already back to COB and the road was still blocked due to snowfall, the doctor at PHC called up the Army for help.

The Indian Army on Thursday conducted an emergency evacuation of a pregnant woman from Kupwara’s Damni village. The woman, Nasesm Kham, was rushed from Nunwani Panchayat of Kalaroos Block to the primary health care (PHC) centre in Kalaroos despite heavy snowfall.
