The death toll in the helicopter mishap reached 20.
The helicopter MI-17 V5 deployed for the rescue operation in Uttarakhand crashed near Gourikund yesterday while returning from Kedarnath. The ill fated helicopter was carrying ITBP personnel and some sadhus.
The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand expressed his grief for the accident and said that the IAF has been doing a great service and exhibited bravery in the mission. As per the State Disaster Mitigation and Management Center, they rescued about 99000 people so far. About 4000 persons are still waiting at Badrinath and the job of evacuation of stranded people will be completed in two days.
The question of why Gods are against us, why they are so angry with us are asked by many pilgrims which even IAF personnel asked when the news of rescue helicopter crashed causing death to the ones trying to save the people hit by the disaster. Is it because they have gone against the wish of the Gods?
