U’khand cloudburst toll at 36, CM surveys area

Dehradun: Rescuers on Saturday recovered seven more bodies pushing the toll from Thursday's cloudburst to 36 in Uttarakhand's Rudraprayag district. 

    "The bodies were recovered from the debris of flattened homes in Kemara, Girijiya and Manglore villages under Ukhimat tehsil in joint 
operations by the army and local administration," said DIG (Pauri range) G N Goswami. 
    A senior IAS officer said rescue efforts are on to recover at least 32 more bodies still trapped under the debris. "The toll might rise to 60 if we are successfully able to recover the bodies from the debris," said a senior police officer. 
    Flash-floods and landslides triggered by cloudbursts on Thursday, flattened homes and washed away livestock in the district. A government source said about 400 displaced residents have been shifted to a relief camp 
    Uttarakhand CM Vijay Bahuguna, along with Pauri MP Satpal Maharaj and disaster management minister Yashpal Arya, on Saturday, conducted an aerial survey of the disaster-hit region and assessed the status of relief work.
