Ten bodies were recovered from avalanche site at Khooni Nallah near Sadhan Top on the Kupwara-Tangdhar road in Kupwara district where a passenger vehicle was hit by a huge avalanche of snow, trapping seven persons.

Deputy Commissioner Khalid Jehangir told news gathering agency GNS that two more bodies were recovered in the afternoon.

Nearly three hours after the avalanches, a seven-year-old was found alive and shifted to Kupwara hospital, from where he was referred to Srinagar for specialised treatment.

10 civilian persons were killed and two were injured after a snow avalanche hit two vehicles near Sadna top in Kupwara district.

Officials said that the Rashid is now undergoing treatment at District Hospital Kupwara while Bhat has been shifted to SKIMS Soura for specialized treatment.

Locals protested against the authorities, demanding construction of a tunnel to avoid frequent accident on the Kupwara-Tangdhar road, particularly at Sadhna top.

A search and rescue operation was launched by teams of police, Army, SDRF and Mountain Rescue.

Soon after the bodies of passengers travelling in the Sumo vehicle were recovered on Saturday morning, local people staged a protest against the government for not building a tunnel in the accident-prone area. A Beacon officer's body was found on Friday evening, he said.

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has expressed grief and sorrow over the incident. The Chief Minister expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and prayed for solace to the departed souls.
