Central agencies and state monitoring situation in Uttarakhand: Amit Shah

Union home minister Amit Shah on Tuesday informed the Rajya Sabha that central and state agencies are monitoring the ongoing rescue operations in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district after a glacier burst in the region on Sunday left at least 29 people dead.

Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Tuesday conducted an aerial survey of areas affected by the glacier burst and also visited the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) hospital in Joshimath in Chamoli where injured people have been admitted.
At least 1,000 disaster response, military and paramilitary personnel worked to clear a 1.7-km tunnel in the badly hit National Thermal Power Corporation’s 530 MW Tapovan Vishnugrad project on Monday, where at least 35 people are still stranded in waist-deep muck. They had rescued 12 people stuck in a small tunnel at the NTPC dam site on Sunday.
