Manipur Landslide Tragedy: Death toll reaches 44 in day 5

Guwahati: At least, two more bodies have been recovered from the Tupul landslide spot today, which now takes the death toll to 44. Commandant of 12 NDRF Battalion Pankaj Kavidayal informed Northeast Live that bodies of a territorial army jawan and a civilian have been recovered from the Ijai river today.

Search and rescue operations, meanwhile, are underway on a war footing to locate the remaining 18 who are feared buried under the debris.

And earlier this morning, the mortal remains of 5 territorial army men were flown to their respective homes from the Imphal Airport.

These include Lieutenant Colonel Kapil Dev Pandey, Naik Chhedup Lama, Rifleman Pritam Kumar Dutta, Havaldar Umesh Limbu, and Havaldar Deepkar Pradhan.

The Bravehearts were paid full military honors, and wreaths were laid on the mortal remains.

Worth mentioning here, even as inclement weather has been a major hindrance for the rescue workers in the search operations, authorities have reassured time and again that the operations will continue till the last person is traced.

Notably, the Army is using high-tech equipment such as the ‘Through Wall Imaging Radar’ which can detect bodies buried up to 20 meters below, in the search operations.

Meanwhile, the mortal remains of two more Assam workers, namely Bagendra Phukan and Momin Dekaraja arrived in Assam’s Morigaon.
It was only on Sunday that 4 more deceased workers were cremated. As such, the last rites of Bagendra Phukan and Momin Dekaraja were held today in the same spot. Clearly, a pall of gloom has descended on Morigaon.

Meanwhile, the five injured Assam workers, who were admitted at the RIMS hospital in Imphal, have landed at Guwahati’s LGBI Airport. These include Maniram Phukan, Ramen Phukan, Maheshwar Phukan, Jun Basumatary and Prahlad Basumatary. All five hail from Morigaon.

Meanwhile, Jun Basumatary and Prahlad Basumatary will likely be admitted to the Guwahati Medical College and Hospital.

Notably, Assam minister Pijush Hazarika who has been camping in Manipur for the last two days overseeing the rescue operations at Tupul, visited the injured persons at the hospital to take stock of their health condition.
