After the Chamoli disaster, if we see one person actively there in action then that would be DM Swati Bhadauria. She has recently spoke about Uttarakhand rescue mission and the impact on the region after the glacier flood trapped people in a tunnel. Bhadauria is an IAS officer and here's what you should know about her:

  • Surjit Singh Rana of Sune village, who was killed in the blast during the practice, was cremated with military honours on the banks of the ancestral Ghat Dudhganga on Monday.
