Guwahati, Jan 31: The Army troops rescued five persons, including three truck drivers and their co-passengers, from the snow-bound north Sikkim, officials said today.

Defence spokesman Lt Col P Khongsai said the soldiers carried out evacuation of the five persons stuck in heavy snow in a remote area between Samdong and Lachen in north Sikkim between 9 pm and 11 pm on Friday.

According to the Army official, these people were returning from Samdong (Sikkim) to Siliguri (West Bengal), but were stuck due to more than two feet of snow, which made driving extremely dangerous.

“All five evacuees were taken to an Army post where they were provided medicine, food and warm clothing for night stay at the camp,” he said. – IANS
