Landslide kills nine in northern Indian state

Nine people were killed by a landslide in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh on Sunday (July 25) after boulders fell on the vehicle they were travelling in, news agency ANI reported.

The vehicle was carrying 11 people and the two other passengers were injured, along with passers-by.

Video footage of the landslide showed Batseri bridge in the Kinnaur district being destroyed by rolling boulders from the adjacent hillside. The falling rocks also damaged other vehicles parked nearby.

ITBP teams rushed to the spot near Badseri village in the Kinnaur district of hilly Himachal Pradesh to conduct a rescue operation.

Local media said the people in the vehicle who were killed were visiting from the Indian capital Delhi and from other parts of India. One of the injured was a local resident..

About 1,700 kilometres south, in the western state of Maharashtra, at least 125 people died in the last two days after torrential monsoon rains sparked major landslides and flooding there.
