24 Airlifted In Rajasthan As Rains Create Flood-Like Scene

Rajasthan has been witnessing heavy rainfall this year.


Jaipur:  At least 24 people were airlifted today in Rajasthan's Baran district and nearby areas where heavy rains have created a flood-like situation.

Several villages are inundated with water entering buildings, houses and a private power plant in Baran.

"Many villagers had climbed trees amid gushing waters and were waiting for help. A MI-17 V5 helicopter from Air Force Station in Phalodi carried out a rescue operation and rescued 24 people from seven different locations," Defence spokesperson Lt Col Manish Ojha said.

The rescue effort will continue, he said.

Baran and nearby areas have been witnessing heavy rains since yesterday.
