A man in Chhattisgarh’s Bilaspur was rescued by personnel of the Indian Air Force Monday morning. He was stranded at Khutaghat Dam near Bilaspur due to heavy rain and rising level of the dam water. An Mi-17 chopper of the IAF was sent for the rescue mission. The man had jumped into the wastewater weir last evening but was unable to come out due to the heavy flow of the water.
