Hours after the West Bengal government army support in the restoration of essential infrastructure and services damaged by cyclone Amphan, five columns of Indian Army have been deployed in the state.

Several teams hit the streets in the evening and cleared major roads in Kolkata that were damaged by the cyclone.

The army columns were deployed in areas including Tollygunge, Ballygunge, Rajarhat/NewTown, Diamond Harbour, and Behala.

Carrying their own equipment required for clearing the roads and uprooted trees like cranes, JCB and cutters, the jawans cleared major roads in south Kolkata that have been blocked for four days.
