The 199th Battalion of the Border Security Force stepped forward today to help the people of the flood-affected villages that fall in their area of responsibility near the Indo- Bangladesh border.
Sources share that the soldiers of the Battalion distributed packages of food to the people in the village Ujjal and other nearby villages that have been affected by the floods.
At the same time, a free health check-up camp was also organized in the villages to provide medical aid to the villagers. The SMO of BSF, Dr. Lal Rokhawma, checked the health of the people and treated the ones who were ailing. Free medicines were also distributed to the people who received a prescription from the medical officer.
Fogging was also done in these villages to prevent the post-flood diseases like malaria and other insect- borne diseases. The drive was personally supervised by 199th Battalion’s Commandant Balwant Singh Negi, Second-in-Command D.K. Singh and DC (G) Neeraj Kumar.
