Prime Minister Narendra Modi has offered a prayer for the health of a citizen, Mrs. Shamima, and her newborn baby, after the Indian Army and Jammu and Kashmir locals came to her rescue when she was in need of emergency hospitalisation, on the cusp of delivery, but was separated from the required medical services due to snow. 

The PM also lauded the efforts of the Army, who had once again shown bravery and an indomitable will to go beyond the call of duty to help citizens despite testing conditions.
