The primary objective of this precision-driven mission was to ensure the safety and well-being of the individuals who had found themselves in a precarious situation.

Reports indicate that civil administration officials are actively facilitating the return of these tourists from 17 mile to Gangtok. Among the evacuated were elderly, women, and children who had become stranded across various locations in eastern Sikkim due to adverse weather conditions and heavy snowfall.

The Trishakti Corps of the Indian Army demonstrated unwavering dedication as they tirelessly conducted the rescue mission, extending well into the late evening.

All stranded tourists were relocated to safer zones and provided with essential amenities, including shelter, warm clothing, medical assistance, and hot meals, as confirmed by officials. Remarkably, the soldiers went above and beyond by vacating their barracks to accommodate the stranded tourists, a gesture that exemplifies the selflessness of the military personnel involved.
