Extending a helping hand, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh today offered to provide humanitarian assistance to Pakistan that is running against time to dig out 135 people, mostly soldiers, buried under snow after a massive avalanche slammed into a key army camp in the Siachen sector. The Prime Minister made the offer for humanitarian assistance during his meeting with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari in New Delhi. Briefing reporters, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said Dr Singh said India is ready to offer any help to Pakistan. Mr Mathai said, Zardari appreciated India's offer and said he will seek assistance if needed. Meanwhile, in Pakistan, rescuers resumed their desperate search after suspending the operation late last night because of darkness and poor weather, though there were no signs of survivors a day after avalanche hit the camp. The avalanche hit a battalion headquarters at Gyari in Siachen sector, burying 124 security personnel and 11 civilians under up to 80 feet of snow in an area a kilometre wide.
