The district administration has relocated nine families of Bhainbal and Raien villages in Sainj valley to the NHPC campus at Sainj following threat of landslide due to water leakage from the tunnel of 800 MW NHPC Parbati-II project. Residents were shifted after they apprised the district authorities of leakage directly above the villages.

MR Bhardwaj, SDM, Banjar, said the families had been moved to a safer location as a precautionary measure due to threat of landslide. He said the project authorities had been directed to stop the flow of water in the tunnel and take necessary steps to stop the leakage.

Meanwhile, the authorities concerned have stopped the flow of water in the tunnel, however it would take sometime for the leakage to end.

US Sharma, Manager, Parbati-II Project, said that necessary action would be taken to repair the leakage at the earliest and company would take care of the affected persons. He said that so far no house had been damaged in the area where the leakage was reported.
