Shamli authorities start evacuation from relief camps
Muzaffarnagar: Shamli district authorities have started taking steps to evacuate people from relief camps in the wake of the cold wave gripping the north.
According to District Magistrate K P Singh, 267 families have left for safer places and efforts are being made by the district authorities to evacuate more families.
The families that left the camps were given ration of 15 days, Singh said.
A relief camp in Kandhla has also been vacated, he said.
The district authorities are appealing to riot victims to leave the camps to prevent untoward incident due to the cold wave sweeping the region.
Meanwhile, victims living in Malakpur relief camp in Shamli district have refused to leave citing unavailability of any safe place for them.
The victims refused to leave the relief camp when some officials reached there yesterday.
It is learnt that four official relief camps are functioning in Shamli district.
The riots in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas that started in the last week of August claimed over 60 lives and left thousands homeless.
