The trucks will go to Guptkashi from where the food packets and winter clothings loaded in them will be distributed among 2,200 affected families of 20 villages in Kedar valley, an official release said. The relief materials were contributed by Helpage India.

Meanwhile, 64 more bodies were found lying over the ridges in Kedar valley and cremated with necessary rituals, a senior police officer said.
    
"These bodies seem to be of devotees who climbed up the ridges out of fear after the mid June calamity to save themselves and perished due to extreme cold conditions there," Inspector General RS Meena.
    
A total of 64 bodies have been consigned to flames over the past two days between Rambada and Kedarnath shrine, he said.
