In a recent incident, BSF jawans went beyond their duty in the cut-off area of Chitrakonda in Malangiri district and saved the life of a critical woman by ferrying her to a nearby hospital in the absence of any other mode of transport.

As per reports, a woman identified as Pan Pangi from Dishariguda village in the district had allegedly consumed poison over some family feud.

Following the development, Pan’s husband Madan informed about the incident to the nearest BSF Battalion seeking help.

A group of BSF jawans reached out to them soon and ferried the critical woman in a boat and another escort boat to one of their camps located 14 km away from the remote area at Ghanabedha. Subsequently, the jawans carried the woman to Chitrakonda Hospital in an ambulance.

 Following immediate medical attention and treatment of the critical woman at the hospital, her life was saved.

Pan’s health condition is reportedly stable now. 

By such gesture, the BSF jawans have proved that they are not only providing safety and security to the people of the Swabhiman Anchal from the Maoists, but they are going beyond their call of duty to help locals during their difficult times.

“We got the information about the critical woman at around 10 pm a couple of days back. Our jawans immediately evacuated her with the BSF speed boat and then took her to the nearby hospital in an ambulance. We are happy that her life was saved. BSF jawans are always ready to extend their help to the people in Malkangiri,” said BSF Commandant Kamal Khulbe.

Following the incident, local people have heaped praises on the BSF jawans for their act.
