Four warriors and two doormen have passed on after a torrential slide struck on the Siachen ice sheet in Indian-controlled Kashmir, a military authority has said.
The eight-man watch was near 19,000 feet (5,800 meters) up in the Himalayas when the torrential slide hit.
Salvage groups figured out how to haul every one of the men out and helicopters cleared seven basically harmed individuals from the gathering to a close by military medical clinic.
Six of the men later kicked the bucket of hypothermia.
Pakistan and India have neglected to neutralize the Siachen ice sheet in spite of talks. It is known as the most elevated combat zone on the planet.

India and Pakistan’s icy battle
India held onto control of the icy mass in 1984, and from that point forward a larger number of officers have passed on from the conditions than in battle.
A gathering of 10 Indian fighters kicked the bucket when a torrential slide hit an army installation in the district in February 2016.
Avalanches and torrential slides are normal in the locale during winter, when temperatures can drop to – 60C.
