Gurez avalanche: No trace of missing student as operation enters 8th day

Gurez avalanche: No trace of missing student as operation enters 8th day

Srinagar, Feb 23 (UNI) There was still no trace of a student, who went missing after a snow avalanche hit Gurez-Tulail area in north Kashmir district of Bandipora, even as the operation to recover him entered eight successive day on Sunday.

A police official told UNI that the rescue teams despite rigorous efforts have not been able to locate the student, who was buried under several feet of snow at Check Nallah.



With the first light this morning, search operation was resumed to rescue Javid Ahmad Lone, who was buried under a snow avalanche on February 15 along with two other students when they were on way to home at Tulail after appearing in a local examination at Gurez.



However, two other students identified as Arif Hussain and Ali Mohammad Lone were rescued and shifted to hospital in an injured condition.



Sources said that the rescue operation in the area by locals, police, Army and SDRF personnel was stopped at around 2200 hrs due to darkness and threat of more avalanche. 'This morning operation was again resumed at 0700 hrs to rescue Javid,' they said, adding the operation continued even on Thursday despite bad weather conditions.



'Sniffer dogs were also pressed into service to recover Javid,' they added.



Gurez, a border town surrounded by Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) from three sides, remain cut off from district headquarters Bandipora for the past more than two months due to accumulation of snow and slippery road conditions, particularly at Razdan pass.
