ITANAGAR, JUNE 21: 3 injured and several vehicles damaged in a massive landslide near Saturday market on Chimpu-Hollongi NH-415 on Tuesday morning.

The victim, Dai Taji, informed that the landslide took place at around 11.30 AM and I was witnessing the slide which damaged my OBT complex attached to my RCC building complex. I saw the landslide and ran to save myself but the slide was so massive that it hit me even more than 60 meter and I was almost buried in the debris, I was rescued by locals and got treatment and now stable. My daughter in law also received injury and one onlooker was also injured in the incident. He said.

Several vehicles parked in my complex and the area were badly damaged while few partially damaged. Few shops have also been damaged in the incident. He said.

This area is prone to landslides and it is known to the capital administration but who cares, everyone knows that several disasters are due to manmade but I have lost many things in the incident however I was saved by the grace of god. Taji said.

The national highway was blocked due to massive landslides and one portion may remain closed for several days as has happened every year, however the machine has been deployed and traffic movement is lying on the highway. Taji added.

As per information the capital police has deployed a traffic police to oversee the traffic movement on the highway.
