SC asks Uttarakhand to file affidavit on rescue work

New Delhi:  The Supreme Court today directed the Uttarakhand government to file an affidavit stating that rescue and relief work were over and those rescued were provided immediate relief.

Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice Fakir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla asked the state to file the affidavit after its claim that rescue operations had got over was disputed by the counsel for PIL petitioner Ajay Bansal.

“We call upon the state of Uttarakhand to file an affidavit indicating therein that the rescue operations are over and immediate relief was provided to the rescued people,” the ccourt said in its order.

The court listed the matter for July 12 and asked Uttarakhand to file its affidavit by July 10.

Hundreds, probably thousands, were killed after unprecedented floods and landslides caused havoc in Uttarakhand last month.
