While speaking to ANI, Uttarakhand DGP Ashok Kumar said, "No need to spread panic. The glacier burst yesterday, boulders and debris followed which washed away the Raini power project causing a massive impact on Tapovan. All of this happened yesterday. 32 people from first and 121 people are missing from the 2nd project." "Out of these, 10 bodies have been recovered so far - 3 from Tapovan and 7 in the route to Karnaprayag. 12 people rescued from the smaller tunnel in Tapovan yesterday. Efforts are underway to open the bigger tunnel. Debris is being removed from it," he added.
