    Indian Army docs treat Pak soldiers in Congo


    New Delhi, June 8
    Indian Army doctors posted in Congo on a UN Mission are nowadays treating Pakistani soldiers who have been injured in a clash while on UN peacekeeping deployment in the same country.

    The Pakistani soldiers are also on a UN Mission, but are deployed elsewhere in Congo. Sources said the Indian Army unit at Goma treated injuries to eight soldiers, including one officer, of the neighbouring country.

    They were injured in a gunfight with Congolese rebels in the South Kivu province. Indian troops are deployed in North Kivu province.

    As many as 11 Pakistani soldiers sustained injuries, including a few serious ones, in the armed clash.

    Due to a lack of adequate UN medical facilities in South Kivu, the injured were immediately airlifted to the Indian hospital at Goma.

    Two of them needed life-saving surgeries which have been performed. The duo has been moved to a hospital in Pretoria, South Africa. Four others have been discharged while remaining two are recuperating at the Indian hospital. Sector Commander of Pakistan visited the hospital. He met Indian Brigade Commander Harinder Singh, and thanked him. Lt Gen Chander Prakash, Force Commander of the Mission, also called on the injured.
