One killed, another missing as intermittent rains continue in Uttarakhand
The incident took place last evening when Mohan Singh (68) was going to Tomik from Jhapuli, the State Emergency Operation Centre (SEOC) here said.
In a similar incident in Dharchula area of Pithoragarh district, a porter was swept away by the strong currents of Kali river when he fell into it after being hit by the rubble of a landslip, the SEOC said.
Meanwhile, the body of one of the two tourists from Kanpur, who had drowned in a pond at the bottom of a waterfall in Dhari area of Nainital district, was recovered today.
Efforts are underway to find another tourist who had fallen into the pond along with him.
Intermittent showers continued in most parts of the state today, triggering landslips which blocked the Rishikesh-Gangotri National Highway.
The current spell of rain in Uttarakhand, which has stretched beyond a week, has blocked more than a 100 big and small roads.
