ITBP has tasked its men undertaking rescue operations in Kedarnath to take out everyone including reluctant 'sadhus' from the rain ravaged temple town.

"There are reports with our personnel that some sadhus have refused to be taken out from Kedarnath. I have asked my men to persuade them and leave the place," ITBP DIG Amit Prasad said.

Prasad said the numbers of these Sadhus would be between 15-20 and they need to be brought out as that area has a number of bodies which could lead to spread of diseases.

The ITBP and Army on Sunday said that Kedarnath area would be cleared of all people by Monday evening.
