Dehradun : The zeal with which the relief and rescue teams worked to rescue 41 laborers trapped in the Silkyara Tunnel accident in Uttarkashi will now be rewarded by the government. According to the information given by the CM office of Uttarakhand, the Uttarakhand government will give a reward of Rs 50 thousand to the employees involved in the relief and rescue team.

Laborers were brought to Rishikesh AIIMS

Meanwhile, the workers evacuated from the Silkyara Tunnel were brought by helicopter to Rishikesh AIIMS on Wednesday where they are undergoing medical checkup. All 41 laborers have been brought from Chinyalisaur to AIIMS Rishikesh by Chinook helicopter of the Indian Air Force. After being taken out of the tunnel, they were taken to Chinyalisaur Hospital, located 30 km from Silkyara, where they were kept under the observation of doctors. All the workers are healthy but due to being stuck in the tunnel for more than two weeks, they have been brought to AIIMS Rishikesh in view of possible health problems.

CM Dhami inquired about the well being of the workers

Earlier, an official of AIIMS Rishikesh said that the workers will first be taken to the trauma ward. He told that from there he will be transferred to the 100-bed emergency ward where all his health parameters will be checked. He said that all facilities and doctors are available in the hospital for medical checkup of the workers. Earlier, after meeting the workers at Chinyalisaur Hospital and taking stock of their well-being, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, while talking to the media, had said that all the people are healthy and happy but on the advice of doctors, they are being sent to AIIMS Rishikesh for examination. When a part of the four and a half kilometer long tunnel being built on the Chardham Yatra route collapsed on November 12, 41 workers were trapped inside it, who were rescued safely on Tuesday after a rescue operation conducted on a war footing.
