“Captain Fatima Wasim of the Siachen Warriors creates history by becoming the first woman medical officer to be deployed on an operational post on the Siachen Glacier,” the Fire and Fury Corps said in a post on X.

The Fire and Fury Corps further said that she was inducted to a post at an altitude of 15,200 feet after undergoing rigorous training at the Siachen Battle School, which speaks of her indomitable spirit and high motivation.
