Leh, Ladakh — A heart-wrenching incident unfolded near Kiari in Leh on Saturday evening, as an army truck veered off the road and plummeted into a gorge, resulting in the devastating loss of an army officer and eight soldiers.

The tragic accident occurred as the troops were en route from the Karu garrison to Kyari near Leh. The truck’s sudden departure from the road led to the unfortunate loss of lives. The entire region has been gripped with sorrow and sympathy as news of the incident spread.

In a solemn display of respect, a wreath-laying ceremony was conducted by the Fire and Fury Corps Commander along with all ranks.
