Around 180 tourists were rescued by the police from Kempty Falls in Mussoorie, which was flooded after torrential rains lashed the hill station on Sunday.

The 40-feet high waterfall in Tehri Garhwal district in Uttarakhand saw a deluge after the heavy rains.“I have never seen the waterfall like this. I called police immediately after I saw that the tourists were stuck," Nagendra Panwar, who runs a shop near the Kempty Falls, told The Times of India.





According to the report, the rescue operation was undertaken by a team of seven who used life jackets and ropes to bring all the tourists back safely.
