Indian pilgrims, stranded at Dana Village in Nepal's mountainous Myagdi district while returning after offering prayers at the iconic Muktinath temple, were evacuated safely Thursday, an Indian Embassy official said. The 72 pilgrims comprising children and many people over 70 years of age were stranded due to flash floods, incessant rains and landslides. PTI
