Mukesh Pandit had used the HelpLine number to talk to his relatives in Mordiha village, Godda.” I have got ten stitches on my head”, he is learnt to have told his relative on the phone.

The relatives have demanded that they should be brought to Jharkhand and treated well.” This is because the number of injured exceeds 900, and all of them can not get proper Medicare there.”
