BSF Dy Commdt, driver missing after flash flood
Rajouri, July 26: A Deputy Commandant of Border Security Force (BSF) and his driver went missing after their vehicle was washed away by a flash flood in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir.
The incident occurred when Deputy Commandant Tarun Gupta and constable-driver Uday Kumar were travelling to Sundarbani from Nowshera early this morning, a BSF spokesperson said.
The flash flood washed away the Maruti Gypsy in which the duo were travelling while crossing a rivulet at Seri in Rajouri district.
Rescue teams of Army and BSF personnel later found the vehicle a few hundred metres away from the spot but Gupta and Kumar were missing, the spokesperson said.
According to officials, the incident occurred when the duo was patrolling in the area near the forward belt along the Indo-Pak border.
The Seri rivulet flows into Bhimber area of Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK). The army, sources said, has contacted its counter-part across the border for tracing the BSF men.
