Five soldiers of the Army are feared to have drowned after their T-72 tank was swept away while crossing a river near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Nyoma-Chushul area of Ladakh

Srinagar, June 29: Five soldiers of the Army are feared to have drowned after their T-72 tank was swept away while crossing a river near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Nyoma-Chushul area of Ladakh early Saturday morning, officials informed PTI. The incident took place around 1 am near Mandir Morh, approximately 148 kilometers from the area. The tank, carrying five soldiers, sank due to flash floods during a routine exercise, according to officials.

“There were five soldiers in the tank at the time of the incident including one JCO and 4 Jawans. One person has been located while the search for others is still going on,” defence officials told ANI.

Last year, nine soldiers including a JCO lost their lives when an army truck they were travelling in, veered off the road and plunged into a deep gorge near Kiari in Leh district.
