Shepherd hurt in landslide airlifted to Kangra

Dharmshala: A shepherd, who was injured in a landslide near Bara Bhangal four days ago, was airlifted on Thursday and brought to Gaggal airport to provide him medical treatment.
Chet Ram had sustained injuries on the legs and back after he was almost buried under a landslide about 20 kms away from Bara Bhangal in Kangra district. He was taken to Dr Rajendra Prasad Medical College and Hospital, Tanda, in Kangra. The village, which is one of the remotest in Himachal Pradesh, can be reached after a trek of 72 hours.
Kangra deputy commissioner Rakesh Kumar Prajapati said the authorities had information about the accident on August 5 as the villagers at Bara Bhangal used a satellite phone to inform the local authorities in Baijnath. He said the officials had sent a helicopter for the rescue but failed to do so because of the inclement weather.
