Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, chief minister of Himachal, on the Kasol rescue. Successful Kasol rescue effort! We are grateful to our hardworking staff for transporting all stranded tourists safely to safe areas. Our main concern was making sure they were okay. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this quick and effective operation,” he tweeted along with this image.

Police personnel in Himachal Pradesh are now concentrating on isolated locations with difficult topography and poor mobile connectivity to find trapped passengers after 60,000 visitors have already been rescued.

In many areas of the state, flash floods and landslides were caused by heavy rain, which closed roads and destroyed property.

In order to hunt for stranded persons, police teams are now travelling to difficult and interior locations where roads have been blocked by floods and landslides, according to DGP Satwant Atwal, who spoke to PTI on Friday.

Many visitors who are stranded in Kasol, Manikaran, and other nearby locations have decided to stay put on their own for a few more days until things settle down and all roads are reopened rather than leave without their vehicles, she said.
