Protestors disrupt vehicular movement on highway
Body retrieved from Chenab
Ramban, Apr 14: Outraged at what they termed as the failure of administration to launch a rescue operation after an accident yesterday, hundreds of people staged a protest demonstration here on Saturday disrupting vehicular movement on Srinagar-Jammu highway.
Pertinently, four persons were drowned after a Sumo they were traveling in fell into river Chenab.
Raising anti-government and anti-administration slogans the protesters blocked the vehicular movement on the highway and demanded immediate action against the police officers, who allegedly failed to take immediate action to retrieve the bodies.
Assistant Commissioner Revenue Gansham Bali and SP Ramban Anil Mangotra reached the spot and assured the protesters that efforts are being made to retrieve the bodies.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, SP Ramban claimed that the police reached the spot immediately after the accident but the operation was called off due to the heavy rainfall, last evening.
Meanwhile, the police and members of Quick Reaction Teams continued the search of the victims throughout the day today and managed to retrieve the body of a woman, Rizwana Begum daughter of late Muhammad Sharief Daing of Tatarsu Ramban.
Three more bodies remained untraced, while the officials said that the search operation would continue on Sunday.
