Seven dead, over 20 missing in Himachal landslide

Over 50 passengers are feared dead after two buses belonging to the Himachal Pradesh Road Transport Corporation were swept away in a landslide in the Mandi district of the state during the early hours of Sunday. One of the buses was going from Manali to Katra and another from Manali to Chamba.

"The army and NDRF have been called while police, home guard and fire services have already been deployed in the rescue and relief operation", Kadam said.

Following the incident, the National Highway 21 from Mandi to Aut has been closed due to the threat of landslides.
