Landslip atop Nilachal

Surface communication remains heavily disrupted atop the Nilachal Hill when a huge rock collapsed on the road leading to the historic Kamakhya temple on Wednesday.
It took several hours for PWD and forest officials to clear the road after the rock along with uprooted trees blocked a portion of the hillside road in the morning.
There is no report of casualty. Local residents fear the repeat of more landslide in view of the non stopped rains during the last 48 hours. The authority have asked the residents in the hillock to come down to the safe places to avoid further disaster.
Tourists from the far flung areas have been remaining stranded on way to the historic Kamakhya temple from early in the morning.
