Hopes dashed in Dhubri: Narrow escape for CCTV crew

An inclement weather makes it all the more difficult for BSF and NDRF jawans to fish out bodies of the boat mishap victims in Dhubri on Tuesday.

The day long intensified operation in Medatori ghat and Lakhipur by and large failed to achieve notable success till the evening. But over 200 people are still missing and a section of local residents who came to see the mishap believe that those missing might have met watery grave.

On the other hand, a CCTV new crew led by bureau chief had a narrow escape from heavy storm on the river when they were covering the incident on Tuesday evening. BSF jawans later rescued them from the middle of the river.

The four member Central China Television team comprised bureau chief Wangchaw Jianding and cameraperson Love Bhagwarani who were caught in the storm when they were travelling the river on a small boat.
