Srinagar: Army on Sunday resumed searches for two soldiers, who went missing after their boat capsized during a rescue and relief operation in flood-affected Pulwama district of Kashmir.

“The search operation was resumed this morning for the two missing jawans but so far we have not been able to trace them,” an Army spokesman said.

Nine Army personnel, including an officer, were trapped in strong water current at Kakapora in Pulwama district on Saturday when their boat capsized during a rescue operation.

While seven personnel were rescued late in the afternoon on Saturday, two personnel went missing.

The spokesman said initially the searches this morning were focused around the area where the boat capsized.

“Now we have widened the area of search. The personnel have life jackets on and we hope that these would have kept them alive,” he added.
