Arunachal: Two More Mountaineers Join Search & Rescue Operation for Mra, Dao


As the search for missing mountaineers Tapi Mra and Niku Dao continues two more mountaineers including Taka Tamut and Kishon Tekseng have joined the operation. They were inducted into the base camp area on Wednesday to join the on-ground search & rescue (S&R) operation.

Incident commander in-charge Ashok Tajo informed that the route to Camp 1 is not only arduous but widespread presence of screes is making it difficult for the S&R operation team to proceed further. He also said that the team will reach the first base camp on Thursday.

From Veo village, 13 soldiers and four porters have been sent to help the S&R team on the ground.

East Kameng DC Pravimal Abhishek Polutmatla has issued standard operating procedures to ensure a safe and effective rescue operation. He also imposed Section 144 CrPC, strictly banning trekking and expedition activities in Sawa, Khenewa and Lada circles.

The district administration also appealed to the people to refrain from spreading fake information and insensitive action over the Search & Rescue operation.
