    New Delhi, Jun 29: Five soldiers of the Army are feared drowned after they were swept away while crossing a river in a T-72 tank near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Nyoma-Chushul area in early Saturday, officials said.

    They said the incident occurred near Mandir Morh, 148 kilometres from here, during an exercise around 1 am.
