Fifty-five tourists from Chhattisgarh, including 44 women and four children, are stuck in Uttarakhand’s Nainital following heavy rainfall there, officials said on Wednesday. They arrived there last week. “The tourists from Durg are stuck in Kainchi Dham after a landslide there. An army unit reached the spot Tuesday evening and provided food and other help. They are presently at a school in the area. We are in touch with them, and rescue operations will start soon,” said Dipanshu Kabra, commissioner, public relations, Chhattisgarh. Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel has directed top officials to coordinate with the administration in Uttarakhand to ensure the safe return of the tourists. The death from rain-related incidents reached 46 in Uttarakhand on Wednesday while eleven are missing. A flash flood swept through Ramgarh in the Nainital district, where the popular lake town was also inundated and cut off from the rest of the state on Tuesday. A number of landslides were also reported.
