Uttarakhand tragedy: Bodies pile up outside gate of Kedarnath templeDead bodies have piled up outside the gate of Kedarnath temple as the whole town has been completely washed away by the swelling Mandakini River.

‘Take me back, I want to go back,’ cries emotional Uttarakhand survivor

According to reports, rain water gushed into the town from the summit behind the shrine carrying rocks and boulders, destroying everything on its path.

The most ironic part of the tragedy is despite the mobile phone towers remaining intact, there is no electricity due to which people were unable to contact their families as their phones ran out of charge.

IAF has already started rescue operation in the area.
