MI-17 helicopters of the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Tuesday airlifted more than 80 tonnes of construction materials over inaccessible areas of the Subansiri valley for the construction of a bridge over the Kume river. The bridge, being constructed by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), will join the settlements in Huri with Damin and ease the inconvenience experienced by the locals as well as the troops deployed in this remote part of the state. The IAF is assisting the BRO in carrying the loads to expedite the construction. (Defence PRO, Kohima)
