Director General of Indo Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP), Ajay Chadha said that the rescue operations that were halted because of inclement weather will continue as soon as the weather improved. Chadha also said that the rescue forces faced problems while flying the helicopters due to inclement weather. Reportedly, floods and landslides, caused by heavier-than-usual monsoon rains have killed at least 560 people and many other locals, pilgrims and tourists missing, while after a long rescue operation, number of stranded people have been shifted to safe places by the paramilitary forces and other rescue teams. Thousands of military servicemen are involved in rescue operations, with air force helicopters plucking survivors, many of them Hindu pilgrims and tourists, from the foothills of the Himalayas.
