Bodies of 7 soldiers died in avalanche in Arunachal recovered

In a statement, the Indian Army said the bodies of seven soldiers killed in an avalanche in Arunachal Pradesh on Sunday had been recovered. There were immediate rescue operations in the high-altitude Kameg sector after the patrol team was hit by the avalanche. It occurred in inclement weather amid snowfalls during inclement weather, it said. 

Despite putting the best efforts, unfortunately, all 7 soldiers have been confirmed dead. “The area, located at an altitude of 14,500 feet, had been witnessing inclement weather with heavy snowfall since the last few days. The bodies of the soldiers are currently being transferred from the avalanche site to the nearest army medical facility for further formalities,” the Indian army said. 

Soldiers patrol the high reaches of Arunachal Pradesh on a regular basis, and avalanches pose a big threat when the weather is bad.
