Dehra Dun, Aug 5:
ITBP and police personnel today searched debris of flattened homes and dug rubbles to look for more bodies in rain-ravaged Uttarakhand where the toll due to the incessant downpour reached 34.
Six people were still missing in the Uttarkashi district, said a top government official.
“In Uttarakashi alone, 31 people have been killed and six are still missing following heavy rains,” District Magistrate R Rajesh Kumar said.
Twenty three workers of the state-run UJVN Ltd’s Assi Ganga hydel project, who went missing early Saturday following a cloud burst in the upper hills of Uttarkashi district, have now been declared dead.
“We are now counting these 23 workers in the list of dead people,” said Kumar.
