Arunachal Pradesh

Search and rescue operations to find two mountaineers from Arunachal Pradesh.

Tapi Mra, who scaled Mount Everest in 2009, and his companion Niku Dao went lost.

Beo village is around four and a half hours away from Seppa on a motorable road. 

There were 13 people on the private excursion, including two mountaineers and 11 porters.

Four helicopters are currently available at Tezpur in Assam. 

Everything is prepared, but we are on standby because of the weather. 

However, with the forecast severe rainfall through Friday, it is improbable.
