Ukhrul: Deputy Commissioner of Ukhrul District, Krishna Kumar, visited the victim’s family of the two women swept away by the swift current on October 24, 2022, while crossing the river of their paddy field at Poi Village with relief materials of essential commodities like rice, oil, dal, etc.
The DC of Ukhrul consoled the two victim’s families and assured every possible help the district administration would give in tracing the victim’s body. He also said any further grievances of the family members would be addressed.
The incident happened when the two women went to their paddy fields on the fateful day. As it rained the whole day in the area, the volume of the water in the river where they had to cross rose and the swift current of the river swept both the women.
The body of Late RS Ngamreila was recovered at Tusom river after an intensive search by the Disaster Management of Manipur in collaboration with the Ukhrul District Police, locals and nearby villager volunteers on Oct 27. But the body of the other victim, RS Ramreila is yet to be traced.
The visiting team included SDO Ukhrul Suranjoy Maibam Singh and DRDA PO Roland.
