One more person was found dead in the landslide-battered Darjeeling district, taking the toll to 41.
The body of Ramesh Rai (26) was retrieved from under rubble in the 8 Mile area of Kalimpong by NDRF and Civil Defence volunteers yesterday, district Disaster Cell Officer-in-charge Gopal Rai said.
Meanwhile, preliminary repair work was going on along those parts of the three national highways where damage by landslides was comparatively light, according to Public Works Department sources.
For major damages, tenders have to be floated according to PWD rules, they said.
