Rashtriya Rifles Battalion based at Jhangar under the aegis of Rashtriya Rifles Force Head Quarters, Reasi immediately launched a quick reaction team to assist the civil administration in their efforts to recover a bus fallen in the Gambir River.
The team equipped with adequate stores, medicine, food and clothing rushed to the spot where the bus was drowned in the surging waters of Gambir River. The action to recover the vehicles with the persons still trapped inside was boosted by the technical and manpower support provided by the Rashtriya Rifles personnels.
Dr Vijay Kumar is one of the many Sarpanches of the area who always know whom to go to in times of distress and they have always gone back happy, however not in this instant case. He quietly went to the condolence meeting, knowing fully well that more tragedy was averted but for timely action by the Army.
