In a display of humanity, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel carried the dead body of a District Reserve Guard (DRG) jawan on foot across a river, after their vehicle had gotten stuck due to rise in water level.
The DRG jawan died on Saturday night at the District Hospital in Sukma where he was admitted for treatment.
The body of the jawan, a resident of Bheji village, had been stuck in the rising waters at the Injaram village for over two hours before the CRPF personnel intervened and carried it across.
