Deepti Mandhotra, SDM, Jogindernagar, said that out of 46 bodies that have been recovered, 45 have been identified.

Dula Ram, another affected person, said he had lost his two-storey house, cattle and 37 bigha agriculture land. Now he was staying with his relatives. “My name was listed as affected but I am still waiting for compensation,” he said.

Additional Chief Secretary Tarun Shridhar said, “We are taking opinion of geologists so that danger from artificial lake could be averted.” “The team of geologists is there to ascertain the cause of landslide and after finding any solution, corrective steps will be taken.

Our first priority is to rehabilitate the affected people and find solution for their apprehensions,” he said. Meanwhile, the DC has cautioned people not to crowd the site as it was hamperinmg the search operation.
