Salamudden S Shahbudeen, a Gujjar nomad hailing from Paghthali village of Kathua, had come to the Bhalpadri meadow to set up a temporary shelter but fell unconscious with very high fever and chest congestion, the official said.

Shahbudeen’s wife approached the Army personnel deployed near Bhalpadri for help, following which an operational team of the Army battalion rushed to the spot and provided him with first aid treatment, the spokesman said.

However, as the man’s condition was serious, the troops carried him on their shoulders to the nearest hospital, he said.

With the terrain being highly treacherous and challenging, the quick and “brave action” of the Army troops saved a precious life, the official added.
