Srinagar, J & K, India, (Greater Kashmir): Three persons were killed after being buried under huge mound of snow as an avalanche struck a forest area in Uri sector of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district Monday,, police said.

The trio – Din Muhammad Sood (64), Muhammad Karim Sood (55) and Muhammad Latief Sood (30) – had gone to the forests in Trikanjan area near Line of Control (LoC) to collect wild mushrooms when the avalanche occurred, police said.

As the news of avalanche reached the village, scores of men went to the area and carried out rescue operation. “Though we were successful in retrieving the bodies from the snow but could not save their lives,” said Bashir Ahmad Sood, a local resident.

Avalanches in the upper reaches of the Valley are common occurrence during spring as rising temperatures caused melting of the snow on the mountains.

Deputy Commissioner Baramulla, Khwaja Ghulam Muhammad while talking to Greater Kashmir said the area is a known avalanche zone, however, some locals, despite knowing the area, often venture in search of herbs, putting their lives to risk.
