Woman army doctor deployed in Siachen for the first time

NEW DELHI:  Captain Geetika Koul, a woman army doctor, has been deployed at the world’s highest battlefield, Siachen, for the first time, the Leh-based Fire and Fury Corps said on Tuesday. “Captain Geetika Koul from the Snow Leopard Brigade becomes the first Woman Medical officer of the #IndianArmy to be deployed at the world’s highest battlefield, #Siachen after successfully completing the induction training at Siachen Battle School,” it said in a post on X.

The development comes almost a year after the army for the first time deployed a woman officer, Captain Shiva Chouhan, at the world’s highest and coldest battleground in January 2023. Chouhan is from the Corps of Engineers. Soldiers have a three-month stint in the frozen landscape where the temperature can dip to minus 60 degrees.
