Vehicle of passengers on Chardham Yatra falls into ditch

Mumbai: Three devotees from Maharashtra were killed and 10 others injured when a car fell into a deep gorge in the Barkot area of Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. The incident took place late on Thursday night in Dabrkot. The devotees in the vehicle were from the Tunsar and Nagpur districts of the Bhandara district of Maharashtra and were on their way to Yamunotri Dham.

According to the information received from the police, on receiving the information, a team of The State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) reached the spot and carried out rescue and relief operations in extremely difficult conditions and in the dark of the night. A total of 13 people were on board the vehicle, of which three died on the spot while 10 others, including four children, were injured. The injured persons were pulled out of the ditch and taken to the main road and then sent by ambulance to the hospital where they are undergoing treatment. The deceased have been identified as Purannath of Andheri in Mumbai, Jayashree (23) and Ashok (40) of Bhandara district.

On the other hand, the horses and mules who play important roles in Kedarnath Yatra are not being valued. There is no proper arrangement for them to stay, nor are they being cremated after their death. After the death of horses and mules on the Kedarnath walkway, the owners and hawkers are throwing them there, who are polluting the river by falling directly into the Mandakini river. In such a situation, the spread of the epidemic in the Kedarnath area can also not be ruled out. So far 1 lakh 25 thousand pilgrims have travelled in horse-mules, while other pilgrims have reached the Dham by helicopter and on foot.
