Two soldiers are learnt to have been trapped after a snow-track in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kupwara district caved in.
5 soldiers were initially reported to be caught in the cave-in in Macchil sector.
Due to prompt rescue operations by the Army, 3 soldiers have been rescued and are said to be out of danger. The snowslide that hit an Army post in Macchil sector carried away the soldiers. Only a few days ago, 15 jawans were killed in an avalanche in Gurez region.
This is the sixth avalanche to hit the state in 4 days. There is a high snow avalanche warning in the hilly areas of the Valley till 30 January.
