Joshimath 2.0: A crisis similar to Joshimath is occurring in the Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir where the village of Nai Basti in Tathri is sinking and over 20 homes and a mosque has cracks. The families have been relocated to a safer area and experts have been dispatched to investigate the cause, believed to be due to factors such as road construction and water seepage. Officials are taking measures to ensure the safety of residents and minimize any harm. The cause of the soil sinking is under investigation.
Mosque, and religious school, among other buildings, were declared unsafe
The authorities have declared a mosque and a female religious school in Nai Basti village in Thathri to be unsafe. The number of damaged buildings has risen to 21 due to a landslide on Thursday, following a few days of cracks appearing in the structures. The deputy commissioner and the senior superintendent of police visited the site and promised aid to the impacted families.
19 families relocated
Officials reported on Friday that 19 families were relocated after their homes experienced cracks in a village in the Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir. A mosque and a female religious school in Nai Basti village in Thathri were also deemed unsafe by authorities. The issue arose a few days ago with cracks appearing in some structures but was exacerbated by a Thursday landslide.
Families moved temporarily
Some families have moved to temporary housing provided by the district administration, while others have gone back to their ancestral homes. A village resident who was relocated to a temporary shelter expressed surprise at the cracks in their concrete home, which they had lived in for 15 years. Another local stated that 117 individuals from 19 families, including police officers, ex-servicemen, defense personnel, and laborers, were relocated. Nai Basti was established around 20 years ago and did not experience this issue previously.
