Kailash Masarovar cloudburst: Four bodies recovered in Malpa

Four bodies have been recovered in Malpa after four soldiers and three civilians went missing due to a cloudburst hit the Mangta Nala region of Uttarakhand on Monday.

Many houses, two buses and a number of vehicles were buried in the debris.

A spokesman for the government said that 46 bodies were recovered in the rescue operation throughout the day and five injured were saved in this incident in Himachal.
