HUDHUD Update: Zero casualty formula fails - child dies due to panic evacuation
Zero casualty formula fails. A child dies in Kendrapada district due to panic evacuation.
Yesterday only I had said the government must not have delayed the evacuation process.
7 years old Puja Mallick of Satabhaya area dies in boat of Forest Department which was ferrying people across Baunsagada river in Bhitarkanika area. NDRF was helping rescue by this boat. Another boy Hemant Mallick (13 years) is missing. There was no life jacket in the boat. All who could swim saved themselves. Ironically, the Tehsildar and Sarpanch were also in the boat.
