A Major of the Indian Amry died in an avalanche in Sikkim. Major Nishant Dogra was killed after snow slid at Yongdi in North Sikkim. Dogra ancestrally belongs to Jammu.

Major Dogra was with his battalion at a high-altitude posting. He was inside his make-shift accommodation when the snow slide carried away the entire accommodation on February 9.

The Major, who is from an armoured unit, was found very seriously injured under mounds of snow late night. Climate conditions prevented immediate evacuation. He died on Sunday. Army authorities in Delhi have confirmed his death. The Major’s family originally comes from Jammu, and now lives in Delhi.
