ITANAGAR: A woman from the East Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh has reportedly gone missing after her SUV skidded off the road and fell into the Pare river in Papum Pare district.
A senior official informed that the accident occurred at around 9:50 am at Balapu village in Sagalee ADC circle of Papum Pare.
Sagalee DSP Bomken Basar informed that the vehicle was coming from Seppa towards Itanagar, and was being driven by one Bishop Nampe (29), of Nampe village in East Kameng district.
The police informed that the vehicle veered off NH 13, fell down about 200 meters, and later fell into the Pare river. Nampe reportedly sustained grievous injuries and was evacuated to the Sagalee CHC. A woman identified as Amak Dolo from the Bodo village in Sawa circle is yet to be found.
A search operation by the local police and the relatives of the missing woman is on. The National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) has also joined the search operation, the police added. Operations have been made difficult by the fact that the Pare river has swelled up amid the monsoons making it difficult to navigate.
More details awaited.
