It is worth recalling here that, a 22 year old from Assam, Late Harish Doley had reportedly fallen down in the deep gorge of around 200 mtrs at Yamne-Siang river confluence with a Baleno Sigma car when they had visited the Pongging View Point, a popular tourist spot, along with his friends. Due to heavy rain and monsoon season, the dead body could not be recovered on the day as the steep mountain slopes posed a great challenge for the search operation team wherein even SDRF personnel were also placed in. However, two brave-hearts from Ayeng village, namely Nonong Borang and Opok Megu could successfully recover the dead body of decease despite of tough terrain and inclement weather that time.

“We as a responsible society motivate the morale of the brave youths and encourage them more in saving humanity wherever possible. The incident of Pongging wherein one tourist from neighboring Assam lost his previous life was very disheartening to us, but we were happy at least the dead body could be recovered despite of the car fallen down on the deep and steep river confluence which is one of the most danger zone of Siang-Yamne river areas. And the role of the two youths Borang and Megu was praiseworthy, hence we felicitated them during our conference”, informed Apel Tayeng, President and Abi Moyong, General Secretary, TES.
