An Indian Air Force helicopter patrols during a rescue mission in the Kurangani hills in Tamil Nadu's Theni district on Monday.

Chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said the government would probe into the trekking expedition organised by a Chennai-based club without claiming proper approval from the forest department.

"All activities are free - expenses are shared equally among participants", the website www.chennaitrekkers.org says.

Madurai District Collector Veeraraghava Rao said medical teams comprising plastic surgeons have been deployed to provide treatment at the Madurai Government Rajaji Hospital.

According to reports, a group of trekkers from Chennai, Coimbatore, Tiruppur and Erode took a leisure trip to the Kurangani forest in Bodi range at Western Ghats on March 10, Saturday.

"A total of 10 trekkers perished in the fire".

Nine people were killed in a forest fire in southern India after becoming trapped while hiking, police said Monday. "One of the few who were reachable by phone gave us accurate information on the location of the group", the organisation said. He said the forest fire was reported in the Kurangani Hills for the past 15 days but the Forest Department had not issued any prior warning notice.

Palaniswami and his deputy O Panneerselvam told reporters in Madurai that the trekkers didn't get permission from the forest department for their expedition.

Besides Theni, there were forest fires also in Ramakkalmedu and Pookkulam Mala sharing their borders with Kerala. "Without permission, they embarked on a trekking expedition", he said. Modi said in a tweet. Three of them had returned to the plains without going ahead further.

The hills are in the Western Ghats near Bodinayakanur, about 40 km from Theni.

Two groups of 36 tourists, mostly women, were on a trekking expedition to Karunkani hills and were caught in a forest fire.
