Family members of the five trekkers from West Bengal, who went missing in an avalanche in Uttarakhand, on Friday urged the West Bengal government to provide details of their whereabouts and end the agonising wait of the kin.The daughter of Sadhan Kumar Basak, one of the five members of the trekking team, told reporters she cannot bear the anxiety any more.
“My father had last talked to us over the phone three days back.The local administration is not yet confirming the worst, but we have been getting varying reports.I am requesting with folded hands to both chief ministers (West Bengal and Uttarakhand) to trace and bring him back to inform even if it’s the bad news.I just want to see his face,” the young woman, struggling to hold back her tears, said.Apart from Basak, who hails from Thakurpukur in the city, three others from Bagnan in Howrah – Chandrasekhar Das, Saritsekhar Das, Sagar Dey – and one from Ranaghat were part of the team.
