Further due to poor road infrastructure along the Indo Myanmar Border (IMB), in these areas majority of the villagers do not have access to hospitals or PHCs for treatment. Hence the team of Sehlon Battalion took initiative to provide requisite medical facilities to maximum villagers of these remote and inaccessible villages and conducted the medical camp, said the release.
The medical camp received overwhelming response from local populace where ARMO of Sehlon Battalion alongwith staff provided medical treatment to 218 people and distributed free medicines, it added.
