Patna: Former Bihar minister Ashwani Kumar Choubey`s two relatives were killed while he survived nature`s fury at Kedarnath in Uttarakhand, a state where 300 people from Bihar are missing.
Choubey, along with his close relatives, a family priest and security personnel, was on a trip to Kedarnath when they were trapped in the landslides and strong currents of the Ganga river.
According to his personal staff, his close relative Subodh Mishra and his wife Rubi Mishra were killed in landslides.
Choubey and his other family members were airlifted by helicopters and brought to Dehradun first and then to Delhi, a relative of Choubeys said Thursday here.
"Choubey`s three security personnel, his priest and a relative are still missing. There is no information about them," an official said.
The reports reaching here from different parts of the state suggest that more than three hundreds people are missing there.
