As citizens in Nagpur district were left stranded due to unprecedented rains, Indian Army rose up to the occasion and came to the rescue of the citizens in various submerged areas. 

On August 29, as rains led to flooding, army troops at Kamptee Cantonment under the aegis of UMANG (Uttar Maharashtra and Gujarat) Sub Area rescued locals in submerged areas of Kuhi in Umrer Taluka. As requested by civil administration, UMANG Sub Area pressed two columns overnight for rescue and relief operations. The mobilised columns will assist the civil administration in rescuing local villagers. 

The troops also rescued locals around Kamptee Cantonment, who were stranded due to massive release of water into Kanhan river, on August 29. The troops relentlessly worked on rescuing locals throughout the intervening night of August 29 to 30 to provide relief to the civilians residing in Gora Bazaar, Chhoti Ajni, Oothkhana and Godown Area. 

Since the main supply of electricity had to be shut down to avoid electrocution, the troops provided the stranded locals with electricity produced through generators. They also provided the villagers with cooked meals and drinking water.
