The Timber Trail cable car stuck midway in Parwanoo, Himachal Pradesh, on MondayChandigarh and New Delhi: A rescue operation is on after 11 persons got stranded in a cable car that stopped midway in Himachal Pradesh’s Parwanoo on Monday afternoon.A trolley was deployed on the cable to rescue the passengers, according to the Solan district police chief. The passengers were being lowered into the valley below with help of rescue equipment. “The technical team of the Timber Trail operator has been deployed and police team is monitoring the situation,” the superintendent of police further told ANI.The cable car is a feature of Timber Trail private resort, about 35 kilometres from Chandigarh, and is popular across the region. The location is at the cusp of Himachal Pradesh with Haryana, Punjab and Chandigarh.  This brought back memories of a similar incident here in October 1992, when one person died but 10 were rescued in an operation by the Army and Air Force. The Indian Armed Forces had some months ago shared on their official Instagram handle a post carrying three pictures from the time the rescue operation was undertaken. The first photo showed the cable car — with Timber Trail Parwanoo written on it —  hanging in the air. Another photo showed a tourist being lifted to the helicopter of the Indian Air Force, while the third one was a group photograph of officers and some rescued passengers.At that time, only half of the passengers could be rescued before it got dark. As a result, the team had to temporarily halt the operation.
