Over 800 Stranded Tourists Are Rescued by the Army in Sikkim

Gangtok: Authorities said that the Indian Army on Wednesday freed around eight hundred tourists who had been stuck in high-altitude regions of eastern Sikkim.

Because of the snow and bad weather, the tourists—who included women, children, and the elderly—were left stranded in several parts of eastern Sikkim.

Officials reported that all of the trapped visitors were relocated to safer regions, given shelter, warm clothes, medical attention, and hot meals, while the Indian Army’s Trishakti Corps carried out the rescue operation till late in the evening.

The stranded visitors were accommodated, and they continued, even to the point where soldiers abandoned their barracks.
