Parang La took three lives

The dead have been identified as Bhaskar Banerjee, 53, Amal Dhara, 35, and Vishwanath, 37, all residents of Howrah in West Bengal.

Three trekkers, who went missing in Lahaul Spiti, of Himachal Pradesh last week have been found dead on a Himalayan glacier, police sources today said. An eight-member team began trekking from Kibber village in Spiti valley to Leh Ladakh last week when they faced bad weather. The sources said while five members managed to reach Leh safely, three others went missing, following which a search was launched for them.

An aerial survey later helped in finding the bodies of the three missing trekkers near Parangla Pass at about 19,000 feet and it took the rescue team five days to retrieve them.
