Medical camp conducted by Army at Nyerak Zanaskar

Srinagar: A Medical Camp for villagers of Nyerak was conducted under the aegis of Fire and Fury Corps. Located in the midst of Zanskar River Valley at 12,000 feet, Nyerak village remains cutoff in winter and is only accessible through the route over frozen Zanskar river involving a 36 Kms trek.
Brig Manas Chatterjee of Fire and Fury Corps led the team of 22 Officers, Four JCOs and 14 OR including medical staff which carried adequate stock of medicines and basic diagnostic facilities along with them. The medical camp saw an overwhelming response by the villagers, who thanked the Fire & Fury Corps and Indian Army for this generous effort in aid of the populace of Nyerak who are deprived of such facilities especially since the area remains cutoff during winters.
