WORLD NEWS SUPERFAST

India News – A huge accident took place in Uttarakhand around 10:30 AM on Sunday. The glacier collapsed in Tapovan in Chamoli district of the state and fell into the Rishiganga River. This created a flood situation and the dam on Dhauliganga was washed away.

Work is underway on the Rishiganga Hydro Power Project of a private power company in Tapovan and the NTPC project of the government company. The disaster has caused the most damage here.

About 15 to 20 laborers working in the Rishiganga project are reported missing. With this, about 150 laborers are feared dead on the NTPC project. These include 50 workers trapped in the tunnel. Three bodies have been recovered from the project site.

It is a matter of relief that the level of Alaknanda River between Peepal Koti to Chamoli has increased, but the flow has become normal due to widening of the river area. After the accident, the teams of NDRF and ADIRF reached the spot and are carrying out rescue operations.

The incident took place at half past ten in the morning. With the breaking of the glacier, the Dhauli River took a formidable form. On seeing the river, it started to bridge every obstacle coming in the way. By reaching the site of the Rishiganga power project, the river became so vast that it drained the entire dam. All the machinery and people present on the spot got caught in it.

After this, the authorities who came into action alerted Haridwar and the discharge of water from Tehri Dam to Bhagirathi was stopped. Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has reached the spot and is monitoring the situation.

The areas along the banks of the Alaknanda and the Ganges have been in panic since the accident. Rafting and boats have been banned in Rishikesh. Not only this, the dam of Srinagar Hydro Power Project has also been emptied, so that the water level of the dam does not rise if the water rises from behind.
