Chandel slide sends shock

Amid relief and rescue operation, NDRF jawans are pounding on Chandel on Sunday morning a day after at least 20 people died in a massive landslip on Saturday.

Union minister of state for home Rijiju is scheduled to visit the landslip-hit area on Monday to take stock of the situation.

At least 20 people were killed in the landslide at Zoumoal village under Khangbarol sub-division on Saturday.
