By Business Standard 05-Jul-2019
"One more body was recovered this morning. A total of 19 bodies have been recovered so far. We are doing a continuous search operation," NDRF Inspector Mahesh Kumar told ANI.
The search operation was restarted by the police and the National Disaster Force (NDRF) this morning as several more people are feared dead in the incident, an official said.
"Today NDRF team has been divided into three parts. The first team has started the search operation near Kherdi. The second team is combing the area from Kalkavane village and will meet the first team. The third team is searching from Kalkavane to Tiware dam site. Local guides have been taken along with teams," an official said.
Local trekkers have been given Porcelain machines for the operation near the dam site. Also, a small NDRF contingent and ambulances are with them.
The Tiware dam developed a breach on the night of July 3 due to heavy rains. The breach caused a flood-like situation in seven downstream villages.
