Mandi, May 11

The body of a 42-year-old farmer, Rajinder Kumar, was recovered at his Bargul village in the tribal district of Lahaul and Spiti today. The victim was buried under a snow avalanche in his field on April 13.

The district administration of Lahaul and Spiti had engaged a rescue team of the district disaster management authority and ITBP personnel for many days to trace him but to no avail. Today, villagers again started a search operation and diverted the water course of a nearby rivulet towards the site to melt the snow. It worked out as the body of victim was recovered. Later, they informed to the district administration about it.
