Nanda Devi Glacier burst in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli District, has led to large scale devastation Rescuers from multiple agencies like the ITBP, NDRF and Army continued their operation to rescue workers trapped inside the Tapovan tunnel as the toll in the Uttarakhand flash floods has mounted to 32 with over 170 missing.
Around 30-35 workers are believed to have been trapped after the avalanche. It has been three days since the disaster occurred and the safety of the people trapped inside the tunnel is a concern.
Heavy machines have removed more slush from the tunnel the whole night. A joint team of ITBP, NDRF, SDRF and sister agencies entered into the tunnel this morning. More slush and water coming from inside the tunnel is making it difficult for them to carry out the rescue operation.
The family members of those trapped are waiting with a bated breath to hear some good news about their kin.
