The death toll from the Uttarakhand glacier disaster rose to 28 with the recovery of two more bodies, even as a multi-agency operation to rescue around 30 workers feared trapped inside a swamped tunnel at the Tapovan power project in Chamoli district continued on Tuesday, officials said.

 
Around 170 people are still missing after the Sunday's disaster apparently caused by a glacier burst, according to the latest data.
 
The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) said its personnel recovered two bodies from debris in Raini village on Tuesday morning.
 
The workers have been trapped in the 12-foot-high and about 2.5-km-long 'head race tunnel' (HRT).
