Actually, 18 km is not really long. There should have been signs every where (i dont see a single one in the videos I was looking at) that they may release water at random times and that people venturing into rivers should do so by their own peril.

When we know there are morons around, what is stopping the officials (?) from posting signs in red, especially near down hills/ falls kind of a set up? It seems like they are too close to the reservoir; else the water wouldnt come at such force.

I hope at least now everyone realize how dangerous unknown waters can be and refrain from going there.

When I was in school, they used to take 10th grade students for a day picnic near a reservoir. One student thought it was an excellent idea to jump into the river. he fell to his death and since then, no more picnics.

Poor parents....

Re: Who is to be blamed for the Manali dam tragedy?

Next thing they will say why no lifeguards near the river.. post all the signs you can and still people will die. It is India not USA/UK, what do you expect, and don't people just cross traffic red light knowing full well that they can be hit by a vehicle.

In India this applies almost everywhere.. apne jaan maal ki savari khud zimmedaar hai.

Re: Who is to be blamed for the Manali dam tragedy?

I never understand people who have this gaand ka keeda to go see such stuff. What the fuck is wrong with seeing such things from afar? Saala kisne bola ki dam ke niche utro aur apni gand marao?

Sorry I am very wary of doing anything 'adventurous' which can remotely cause me bodily harm.

About 600 men of NDRF, Army, Navy, Police, ITBP and 50 expert divers conducted a search in swirling waters of Beas for 44 days.

Taking suo moto notice of the news reports regarding the incident, the Himachal High Court had taken up the matter and the management of the Hyderabad college and Larji project authorities were asked to pay compensation of Rs 5 lakh to next of kin of each victims which was to be shared in 50:50 ratio.

The court had also ordered a thorough enquiry in the matter and monitored the enquiry by Divisional Commissioner, Mandi.
