Death toll rises to 821

By Our Staff Reporter

NAGERCOIL, JAN. 6. The death toll in Kanyakumari district in the tsunami disaster rose to 821 following the recovery of four more bodies in different parts of the district on Thursday.

According to Revenue Department sources, 208 men, 229 women, 160 male children and 178 female children were killed after the killer waves lashed various parts of the district on December 26. The district administration is yet to identify 48 bodies and all the un-identified bodies had been buried after taking photographs of them.

However, thanks to the effort taken by officials, the affected fishermen have started returning back to their villages, except for the fishermen of the worst affected areas such as Mela Manakudi, Keela Manakudi, Azhikkal, Pillaithoppu, Kottilpadu and Colachel. As of today, there were only 14 relief camps functioning — six in Nagercoil, each in Muttom, Kanyakumari and Thentamarikulam, three in Colachel and two in Neendakarai.
