9 tourists drown as car washed away by Dhela river in Nainital, one rescued

NAINITAL, July 8: Nine tourists drowned when their car was washed away by flooded Dhela river in Ramnagar in Nainital district of Kumaon region of Uttarakhand on Friday morning. Of a team of 10 tourists returning to Patiala in Punjab, one woman was rescued. Rescuers have recovered four bodies and five people are believed trapped in the car that was swept away. The accident occurred at 5:45 am.

Of the four bodies recovered, three are of those from Patiala and one from Sangrur, according to the police. The bodies recovered have been identified as of Pawan Jacob of Bhim Nagar, Kavita of Guru Angad Dev Colony (Rajpura) and Janvi alias Sapna (village Inderpura), all of Patiala district, and Amandeep Singh of Challa Bhatti Bhawanigarh in Sangrur.

There was heavy rain since the wee hours of Friday causing flood-like situation, and the river got flooded with strong currents.

The multi-utility vehicle the tourists were travelling in was washed away in an overflowing Dhela river.

Locals gathered to rescue the victims of the mishap. A 22-year-old woman identified as Nazia was rescued alive from the car. She has been sent to the Ramnagar hospital.

"Pained by the tragedy in Nainital district, where a car was washed away. In this sad hour, my thoughts are with the bereaved families. Rescue operations are underway to assist those who are trapped," the PMO tweeted.
