Srinagar: Showing courage in time of adversity, two Russian women trapped in flood waters in the city refused to be evacuated till those ailing were brought out first.
Army and IAF today reached out to the two Russian women lodged in a hotel here after they got a distress call from them, an Army officer said.
When they were approached for evacuation, the duo refused to come out saying there were people who were ill and they should be moved out first, he said.
While greater desperation was seen in the areas which are on the outer fringes, people in the interiors of some marooned colonies are displaying a great sense of responsibility and directing the rescue teams to those people who are worse affected.
Around four lakh people are caught in flood waters in Kashmir Valley and are waiting for help.
