Indian Search and Rescue Teams Withdraws from Nepal After 9 Days Since the Quake

India will be withdrawing its search and rescue teams from quake-hit Nepal, along with 34 other nations, the government said on Monday.

"Rescue teams from all 34 nations have been asked to withdraw as it is now nine days since the quake," external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.


The spokesperson said while the rescue operations were over, the next phase of operations to provide relief and rebuild the nation will continue.

"Search and rescue phase is over. Indian relief efforts will continue," he tweeted.

India was among the first to react and move to Nepal's aid after the devastating 7.9-magnitude quake hit the Himalayan nation on April 25.

The Indian Army, Indian Air Force, and disaster relief teams under the home ministry were rushed to Nepal, while tons of relief material was also sent.
