The security bodies have continued the search for Jay Singh Dhami's body using drone cameras.

Dhami has gone missing since he fell off the tuin (Ropeway bridge) into the Mahakali River while crossing it on July 30.

The Armed Police Force (APF) and Nepal Police have jointly continued the search towards the territory in Nepal while the Indian Seema Suraksha Bal (SSB) has been conducting the search towards the Indian territory on the bank of the river.

The security bodies have continued the search from Mal of Vyans Rural Municipality-2 up to Khalanga area of Mahakali Municipality.

An investigation team formed by the government to probe the incident has said the search for the missing Dhami's body will be carried out using drone camera for one time. The probe team reached Khalanga, the district headquarters of Darchul, on August 3. It is still in Darchula.

Investigation committee coordinator and Home Ministry's Joint Secretary Janardhan Gautam shared that a search would be conducted using drone camera for finding Dhami's body.

The APF No. 44 Battalion Commander, Superintendent of Police (SP) Narendra Bom said they were searching for Dhami's body along the river bank using binoculars.

The team has arrived Darchula with a drone camera, said Gautam, the coordinator of the probe team. The committee is conducting interrogation and taking statements.

The Investigation Committee met with the family members of the missing youth and inspected the incident site on the Nepal side last Friday. It is now busy conducting interrogation and writing report. "The investigation is on. We have been taking information from various people including the security personnel who were close to the incident site that day," he said.

The government had formed the investigation committee on August 1 and it has tasked it to submit a report within 10 days.

"The report might not be ready within the deadline. We will return after the search with the help of a drone camera is over," he said.

Jyotsna Bhatta Joshi, committee member and Chief District Officer, said coordination is being established with the Indian side regarding using drone camera from Malghat of Byas-2 up to Khalanga, the district headquarters.

The investigation committee has remained in Darchula for a week in course of its work. It has carried out on-site inspection from both Nepal and India sides.

Similarly, it has been holding discussions with the district-based political parties and also collecting information from the people's representatives, journalists, human rights activists, locals, eye-witnesses and security bodies regarding the incident.
