Tezpur/IBNS: Intensive search operations have been ongoing for two missing Indian Army personnel, who were deployed in the forward areas of Anjaw district in Arunachal Pradesh since May 28.

Naik Prakash Singh and Lance Naik Harender Singh, deployed in a forward post of Arunachal Pradesh, are presumed to have accidentally fallen into a fast-flowing river in close proximity to their Post.

The Tezpur based Defence PRO said that, despite immediate and extensive search and rescue operations, including aerial reconnaissance and tracker dogs being pressed into action, no success in recovery of the personnel has been achieved. 

"The search operations have been continuing for the last two weeks. A court of inquiry to investigate the incident has been convened by the Army," the Defence PRO said.

He further said that, belonging to Uttrakhand, family members of the two soldiers have been informed of the unfortunate incident and are being regularly updated.
