New Delhi: The Army has refused to take any help from Pakistan in search and rescue operation at Siachen Glacier in Ladakh, where ten Indian soldiers were trapped under snow following an avalanche.
The Indian Army said it do not require any help as it is adequately equipped to carry out search and rescue operation at the world's highest battlefield where temperatures range from minus 42 degrees in the night to minus 25 degrees during the day.
The avalanche struck an Indian Army post in the Northern Siachen Glacier at a height of 19,600 feet.
The army post that faced its brunt was manned by one junior commissioned officer (JCO) and nine soldiers. All ten soldiers have gone missing after the avalanche.
