Gauchar: ITBP has tasked its men undertaking rescue operations in Kedarnath to take out everyone including reluctant `sadhus` from the rain ravaged temple town.

"There are reports with our personnel that some sadhus have refused to be taken out from Kedarnath. I have asked my men to persuade them and leave the place," ITBP DIG Amit Prasad told PTI.

Prasad said the numbers of these Sadhus would be between 15-20 and they need to be brought out as that area has a number of bodies which could lead to spread of diseases.
The ITBP and Army on Sunday said that Kedarnath area would be cleared of all people by tomorrow evening.
