GUWAHATI: An Indian army officer from Assam is said to have perished tragically in Ladakh due to the frigid temperatures. January 23 saw a report of the occurrence. According to reports, Jaikhlong Mushahary has been named as the army officer. In the Tangla in the Udalguri area, he lived in Banseria. In Ladakh, the deceased was assigned to the Rashtriya Rifles No. 31 as a commission officer.

According to sources, a strong cold wave has been affecting Ladakh for the past few days. At one point on January 17, Drass Town's temperature fell to -29 degrees Celsius. Kargil, however, recorded a low of -20.9 degrees Celsius, while Leh dropped to -15.6 degrees.

Reports claim that a 14-year-old girl who was enrolled in Class 8 at A V Jasani Vidya Mandir in Rajkot, Gujarat, recently passed away unexpectedly after falling in her classroom. The girl, Riya Sagar, died, according to her family members, as a result of the cold weather, and they contend that the school administration should have permitted kids to wear warm clothing of their choosing rather than only uniform jumpers.

At Moran, in the Dibrugarh district of upper Assam, extreme cold has also claimed the lives of two infants. Two newborns, one just four months old and the other one year old, reportedly passed away on Friday as a result of a severe cold, according to health experts. According to sources, Sunny and Rajmoni Dhanwar's second son, a 4-month-old baby, passed away while resting. When the youngster was previously taken to the clinic for an inoculation, he or she was sent home with no significant effects.

The infant's death is thought to have been influenced by poor living conditions, which included leaky roofs and insufficient walls and ceilings. The intense cold also contributed to the death of the one-year-old baby.
