Deoghar Cable-Car Mishap: 10 Rescued

As many as 10 people have been rescued on Tuesday morning after an accident at the Trikut Ropeway service in Jharkhand’s Deoghar on Monday.

The rescue operations are being undertaken jointly by the Indian Air Force (IAF), Army, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the district personnel.
An ITBP official said, “3 to 5 persons are still believed to be in the cable cars and efforts to rescue them are on. We have rescued 10 people since today morning including five men, three women and two children.”

Ashwini Nayyar, the rescue team incharge said, “The rescue operation is on and we will soon rescue all the people stranded in the ropeway.”

Dr S Bharati of ITBP said, “The rescue team has been working for the last 48 hours and our aim is to rescue each and everyone safely.”

Notably, some cable cars collided on a ropeway at Trikut hills close to Baba Baidyanath Temple on Sunday. The IAF received the request for the rescue of approximately 40 tourists stuck in the Ropeway Service. Acting on the request, the IAF deployed one Mi-17 and one Mi-17 V5 helicopter early in the morning on Monday for the rescue.

While one woman succumbed to her injuries in hospital early on Sunday morning, the death toll in the ropeway mishap at the tourist spot atop Trikoot hills rose to two as another man died on Sunday evening while being airlifted. (ANI)
