Fulfilling its commitment as the Sentinels of the North East, Moltuk Battalion of 26 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of HQ IGAR (South) on 02nd November 2019, provided immediate life saving first aid to an elderly couple who met with an accident and seriously injured themselves while riding a bike. The accident occurred during the night of 02nd November 2019 at around 0900 pm, when Mr K.H Jacob and Mrs Mani, fell from their bike near Parlon village in Chandel District and were seriously injured. Both sustained serious injuries on their heads. The incident was informed by the locals to Moltuk Battalion and a medical team of the Battalion quickly reached to the location for necessary assistance. The Nursing Assistant provided essential first aid and stopped the blood loss. The elderly couple was then taken to their home in Parlon village and later advised to be taken to the civil hospital. Since both, the victims were in their late fifty-second too much loss of blood could have been fatal especially in such a remote area where any medical assistance is virtually absent. The timely and effective first aid provided by Moltuk Battalion not only saved the couple but also established the trust within the villagers and Security Forces. The villagers and the village Chief of Parlon village appreciated the efforts of Moltuk Battalion for their timely assistance and for building bonhomie.
