At a time when tensions are flaring high at the Indo-China Border, the Indian Army in a noble gesture extended a helping hand to three Chinese citizens who lost their way in the Plateau area of North Sikkim at an altitude of 17,500 feet on 03 September 2020.
Realizing the danger to the lives of the Chinese citizens which included two men and one woman in sub-zero temperatures, the soldiers of the Indian Army immediately reached out and provided medical assistance including oxygen, food, and warm clothes to protect them from the vagaries of extreme altitude and harsh climatic conditions.
