The rescue operators are only able to pull out about eight people alive from the debris. The left image shows a man named Chandrakant Zanjare who weeps near the place which once held his house. He says he has lost about thirteen people of his family in the landslide. The National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) informed that the removal of mud and slush is making the rescue operation extremely slow and that they don’t want to compromise the lives of the people who are still alive and buried under the slush or debris. Sources belonging to NDRF have informed that it could take another two three days for the operation to be completed. According to One India News, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said in the Parliament that the Centre would form an experts’ team to study the area hit by the natural disaster. It was said that years of deforestation led to the loosening of the soil, causing the tragedy. Singh, who visited the area on Thursday, announced Rs 2 lakh assistance from the PM Relief Fund to the kin of the deceased.
