Srinagar: Two labourers were killed after an avalanche hit Sonamarg in central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district on Thursday, officials said.

The avalanche hit the Sarbal area close to Nilgrath where Hyderabad-based Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) is executing work on the Zojila Tunnel.

Two dead bodies, identified as Sandeep Singh and Bal Krishna — both residents of Kishtwar — have been retrieved so far, officials said.

The bodies have been shifted to Primary Health Centre in Sonamarg for medico legal formalities, they added.
