Manipur Landslide: Death toll increased to seven, 13 rescued, several still missing

Seven persons have already lost their lives as a result of the devastating landslide that devastated the Noney area of Manipur on June 29. According to reports, thirteen people have so far been saved, but over 20 more are still unaccounted for. A landslide at the Tupul yard railway construction site, which is close to the Makhuam area, caused the event to happen at midnight on June 29. On June 30, the army, Assam Rifles, Manipur Police, and residents began large-scale rescue operations.

According to officials, the 107th Territorial Army of the Indian Army stationed defence men close to the Tupul Railway Station in the Noney area to guard a railway line that was still being built from Jiribam to Imphal.

Reports state that all injured people received medical treatment at Noney Army Medical, while the critically injured servicemen were transferred to Imphal.

Officials stated that the rescue efforts have been delayed by recent landslides and the bad weather, and that army helicopters are waiting for the weather to clear before taking rescue operation.
