Perils of Siachen Glacier
Wednesday, Feb 10, 2016 11:24 PM
The conditions at the Siachen Glaciers make military patrols at the 5,800-metre-high glacier extremely dangerous. Our brave soldiers guard the borders with sheer courage and dedication even in the most gruelling conditions. The chance of finding survivors is very remote. Due to the hostile weather conditions, the rescue and recovery operations also get slowed down. On duty in these freezing temperatures stand our brave hearts and Lance Naik is one of them who was found alive deep inside with frost bite. The nation prays for him.
