Nineteen people, including 10 Nepali nationals, have gone missing after a landslide washed away a hotel in the India State of Uttarakhand.

According to the Indian media Dainik Jagran, 19 people including at least 10 Nepali nationals from Jumla and Humla have gone missing after a landslide  buried a hotel in Rudraprayag on the road leading to Kedarnath, a famous Hindu shrine.

According to the Uttarakhand Police, Chandra Kami of Jumla, his son Lal Bahadur Kami, Sukhara Rawat and his son Jora Rawat are among the missing Nepalis.

The hotel, which was buried in a landslide, was being run by Bir Bahadur in Gaurikund. The bodies of three people buried in the landslide have been recovered by the police from the banks of the Mandakini River.

The landslide washed them away when they went to have dinner at Bir Bahadur's hotel. Hotel owner Bir Bahadur, his wife Sumitra, daughter Nisha and son Hari Bahadur have also gone missing in the landslide.

Police have not released their names yet. Dharmaraj Budha and his son Man Bahadur Budha who were eating at Bir Bahadur's hotel are also missing.

It is said that seven more missing persons are also Nepalis. But it is not clear which part of Nepal they are from.

Among the missing are Amar Bohara, his sons Man Bahadur, Prithvi, Jatil and Wakil, wife Anita, daughters Radhika and Pinky.

The landslide washed away the hotel into the Mandakini River. Uttarakhand Police said that they are searching for the missing persons.

It is currently raining heavily in this area. That is why it is difficult for the local police to speed up the rescue and search operations, authorities said.
