Akanksha of Jaipur fell into a deep gorge due to slipping on the snow with a natural spring near Koksar. After a lot of effort, the girl was pulled out of the ditch. The girl died on the way to the hospital.
The administration immediately started the rescue operation by forming a team of ITBP personnel, police, fire department and local people. After hard work, the girl was pulled out of the ditch. It is being told that Akanksha had come to visit with the family. Carrying out the rescue operation was challenging as the area has accumulated heavy snow after the recent avalanche. Deputy Commissioner Lahaul-Spiti Neeraj Kumar said that the girl died on the way while being taken to Manali Hospital for treatment. He appealed to the people not to go to such areas.
