The death toll from the August 11 landslide in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh is 13 people. This was reported on Thursday, August 12, by the NDTV channel.
Thirteen people died and about 30 are missing, after a landslide in Kinnaur district buried several cars, a bus and a truck under a pile of stones.
Ten people were rescued and are in the hospital.
About 200 members of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) have been dispatched to the search and rescue effort.
“We expect the rescue operations to continue throughout the night, if not longer,” the channel quoted an ITBP spokesman as saying.
It is noted that at this point the danger of landslides persists.
In mid-July, at least 15 people were killed in India under the debris of buildings caused by landslides in the Chembur district of Mumbai. The building collapsed due to heavy rains that hit the metropolis.
