In yet another display of our forces going beyond the call of duty to assist each and every citizen of the country no matter the odds or the conditions, the Chinar Corps of the Indian Army on Wednesday rescued two people in a car from overflowing Firozpur River. Chinar Corps rescued Khursheed Bhat and his brother from a car which had become immobile and was about to drown in an overflowing Firozpur Nala near Pattan in Baramulla, J&K.
Chinar Crops tweeted about it:
In the visuals, 3 officials from the Indian Army can be seen helping the people in the car by trying to push and pull the car so that the water doesn't enter it. They can be seen calming the people trapped inside the car. The Chinar Corps waded through waist-deep water and rescued Khursheed Bhat and his brother. The car was being dragged by the force of the water from NH1 towards the nala.
Many people expressed their gratitude to them on Twitter:
This is not the first time Chinar Corps has been praised by the people of India.
In the video, the man can be seen saying:
"This area has been the source of work and food for us. We can see this day only because of your support. When you all are in the border then only our children in Kashmir is safe."
("Humara anna data yehi area hai. Pehle allah hai aur fir ye area. Aaplogo k sahyog aur aap logo ke karan, unhi k vajah se aaj ye din dekh paa rahe hain. Aap log jab border pe action lete hain, toh humare bachhe Kashmir mein mahfooz rehte hain.")
