Imphal Jan 24
In a positive gesture, towards assisting civilian populace, Tulihal Battalion of 9 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR (South) provided emergency medical treatment to victims injured in almost simultaneous two road accidents which took place along NH -02 on 23rd January, thereby saving precious human lives.
In another incident a Tata Magic pickup van collided head on with a truck on NH-02 in front of the main gate of the Battalion. The Battalion immediately launched the medical team under the Regimental Medical Officer and provided prompt medical treatment at the Battalion medical room and thereafter they were rushed to the RIMS Hospital.
The locals have expressed kind words of appreciation for the noble gesture of the Assam Rifles.
