    J &K earthquake toll touches 755 India

    On day three of its ‘Operation Imdad’ or help, the Army today deployed scores of bulldozers to clear roads and tracks littered with quake debris to reach out to remote areas while its choppers ferried medicines, tents and rations and evacuated the injured even as the temblor toll mounted to 755.

    The men in olive green were making all out efforts to reach out to the remote villages of Tangdhar, Keran and Karnah in Kupwara district and Uri in Baramulla, which bore the brunt of the magnitude 7.6 earthquake two days ago.

    According to information reaching the police control room in the state capital, the death count reached 755 with Baramulla and Kupwara districts in North Kashmir alone accounting for 469 and 259 deaths. Mobile medical teams with tons of medicine, dry ration and tents have been dispatched to remote areas to provide succor to people in remote areas, a defence spokesman said, adding that thousands of more tents had also been rushed to Uri and Tangdhar.

    Army choppers continued to undertake sorties carrying relief equipment to the quake devastated areas and ferrying the injured from far flung villages to the make-shift hospital in Uri as also to the Army base hospital and the bones and joints civil hospital in Srinagar.
