Nechiphu Tunnel (Arunachal Pradesh), Sep 30 (PTI) The 500-metre tube Nechiphu tunnel in Arunachal Pradesh's West Kameng district means more for Liza Debisow than merely improving connectivity.

It also means that no one has to go through the harrowing experience her family had to endure when her brother was injured in a road accident in the area before the tunnel was constructed.

"It becomes very foggy in the area and driving is very perilous. My brother was once injured while taking the road home," Liza told PTI, expressing her happiness at the opening of the tunnel.
