U'khand Tragedy: Old Images of Khalsa Aid's Relief Work Shared As Recent
BOOM found the images are old and not related to the recent Uttarakhand glacier burst disaster.
Old and unrelated images of Khalsa Aid volunteers rescuing people in flood hit areas in Jammu and Kashmir and Bihar have surfaced in the backdrop of the glacial burst in Uttarakhand on February 7.
The images show Sikh men help people wade through knee deep water and are doing the rounds with captions that state that relief work had been facilitated by Khalsa Aid in Uttarakhand, in the aftermath of the glacier burst calamity.
On February 7, 2021, a glacial burst and massive flooding of the river Alaknanda and Dhauliganga at Chamoli District of Uttarakhand has claimed many lives and caused severe damage to the hydroelectric plants of that region. The calamity is believed to be caused by glacier bursts and avalanches in higher altitude regions of the district. So far 34 bodies have been recovered and more than 200 persons are still missing.
