Dehradoon - A cloudburst following heavy rainfall led to the deaths
of three labourers late on Monday night.

The victims, identified as Rajan (25), son of Ramkripal and Bablu
(23), son of Chunnu, both residents of Aryagarh, Panna, Madhya
Pradesh, and Noor Alam (35), son of Samiruddin, resident of village
Kaushal Tola, Kishnaganj, Bihar, were asleep at the Sahastradhara-
based Panchayat Bhawan at the time of the incident. They were working
in an under-construction building at the village.

The bodies of the trio were recovered by the city administration on
Tuesday morning. Shockingly, two residents are still trapped in
debris and a search is on to rescue them. However, incessant rain is
hampering the administration's efforts.

The cloudburst, which took place at Kaarligaad, nearly three
kilometres from the renowned tourist destination, late on Monday
night, resulted in acute damage to two panchayat buildings, one
anganwadi centre and two pedestrian bridges. A motor bridge also
collapsed in the rains.

Two other persons, Nasimuddin, son of Kabiruddin, a resident of
Kaushal Tola, Bihar, and Minister, son of Hafizuddin, who hails from
Araria district in Bihar, are still trapped in the debris of the
building. Speaking to The Pioneer, Senior Superintendent of Police,
Dehradoon, GS Martolia, said that even though there is little hope of
their survival, a team has been deployed to rescue them at the

The rescue team consisting of disaster management officials and
district police reached the spot after traversing several kilometers
at first light. The impact of the cloudburst was so intense that it
also disrupted movement of vehicular traffic at the spot.

Interacting with The Pioneer, circle officer, Mussoorie, Shweta
Chaubey said the rescue team reached the spot on Tuesday morning and
debris was removed with help of JCB machines. "Police and the rescue
team travelled around six kilometres on foot to reach the site of the
mishap. Although three bodies have been recovered two persons are
still trapped under the debris," Chaubey said.

Rs 1 lakh relief to victims' kin

Dehradoon: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank'
reached Kaarligaad near Sahastradhara on Tuesday morning.

is committed to ensuring their safety and directed the district
administration to see that the affected families are temporarily
shifted to a safer place in view of continuing bad weather. Disaster
