Cable car gets stuck mid-air in Parwanoo

Shimla: Eleven peole, including five women, were stranded for hours after a cable car was stuck mid-air at Parwanoo Timber Trail in Himachal Pradesh's Solan district, officials said on Monday. All of them were rescued after a six hour-long operation, they said.
According to Solan Superintendent of Police Virendra Sharma, another cable car trolley was deployed to rescue the people. Later, a team from National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) also reached the spot, the officials said, adding the incident was reported around 11 am. One of the rescued persons told the media that all 11 tourists were from Delhi.
Chief minister Jai Ram Thakur, who reached the spot after getting information about the incident, talked to the rescued tourists. Later, Thakur said union home minister Amit Shah talked to him twice over phone and sent an NDRF team to the spot, while an air force helicopter was also put on standby.
To a query, the CM said that the incident would be probed to determine if there was any negligence on the part of the private company running the timber trail. Earlier, state disaster management director Sudesh Mokhta said eight people were stuck in the timber trail due to some technical anag in the cable car.
A tourist from Punjab, Anupam Bhagria, said that the safety of tourists using the timber trails should be ensured. Accountability should be fixed in such incidents, otherwise timber trails should be closed.
