Indian Himalayan rescuers search for 192 missing

Sunday's violent surge below Nanda Devi, India's second-highest peak, swept away a small hydro electric project called Rishiganga and damaged a bigger one further downstream the Dhauliganga river being built by state-firm NTPC.

Bodies of 11 people have been recovered, Uttarakhand State Chief Trivendra Singh Rawat said.

Most of the missing were people working on the two projects, part of the many the government has been building deep in the mountains of Uttarakhand state as part of a development push.
