Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], December 20 (ANI): A military hospital in Jammu is saving the lives of soldiers who have suffered injuries during encounters with terrorists or in ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC).

Regular drills are being held in the hospital to deal with such situations.

Brigadier KJ Singh, Commandant, Military Hospital said that it is their duty to save the lives of injured soldiers, and teams at the hospital are always ready to treat the injured.

"It is our duty to save the lives of injured soldiers. Our disaster management drill takes place once in three-four months. Our QRT teams are always ready.
