Jabri Village, is located along a steep gradient, from which evacuation during heavy snow fall, is extremely challenging.

The Chinar Corps warriors, walked through knee deep snow and reached the ailing lady’s home. They carried the aged lady on their back, to minimise injury to the patient, due to mountainous nature of tracks, steep gradient involved and heavy snow fall conditions.

On reaching Paro, the lady was swiftly shifted to a waiting Army ambulance and successfully evacuated to PHC, Boniyar.
