Indian Air Force airlifts fishermen stranded in river

The two men had become stuck on a barrage in the river following a sudden increase in the water level.

Two other men who attempted to reach safe ground by swimming were also rescued by the officials.

Meanwhile, a heavy downpour in the northern town of Phillaur created flood waters that caused widespread damaged to houses and property.

Significant rainfall in India’s traditional rainy season is essential for two-thirds of the country’s 1.25 billion population, whose daily lives in rural and remote locations rely on farming and agriculture. However, excessive rainfall often gives rise to other problems, such as flooding, landslides, and water-borne diseases.
