CRPF Commandos Win Hearts For Carrying Injured Man To A Hospital 5 Km Away By Foot In Chhattisgarh!


Indian army keeps on setting new benchmarks by going out of their way to help the common man. Remember how the CRPF jawan fed a physically challenged kid in Jammu and Kashmir recently? Our soldiers always lend their support in even the most dire circumstances.

One such case of their humanity and kindness has come to light in Chhattisgarh’s Naxal-infested Bijapur. The troopers of CRPF’s Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) found an injured man when they were on their routine patrolling. Villagers told them that the young man named Andu had fallen off a tractor in the field and sustained serious injuries.

The hospital was 5 km away from the spot of the accident with neither modern roads nor accessible means of transport. The jawans carried the man on a cot on their shoulders to their base camp, reported The New Indian Express.

“It was at Budkicheru, a remotely located tribal hamlet with no approach road connectivity. With the deteriorating health condition of the youths who was in need of urgent medical care, the team of CoBRA swung into action. Without putting any brake into their assigned operation, some of them instantly decided to carry the injured villager on their shoulders. They travelled 5 km carrying a cot, to reach the nearest base camp where the initial treatment was given to him,” CRPF spokesperson commandant B C Patra told TNIE.

An ambulance was later called at the base camp. He was then rushed to the Bijapur district hospital.

“It was the prompt and humane act of 204 battalion CoBRA men that enabled immediate medical attention for the injured. His condition is now out of danger”, the officer added.

The commandos walked straight for 5 km without a halt under the scorching summer sun. Words certainly fall short to express the gratitude and respect we have for all our bravehearts!
