The incident took place along the National Highway-102 between Santing and Saihuan village, about 85 km from the district headquarters.

The rescue operation continues to trace the remaining 12 missing persons from the landslide-affected area at Makhuam.

On the other-hand, CM Bi-ren convened a meeting with experts and discussed about construction of a state cultural centre at Behiang in Churachandpur district and a memorial complex for Maichou Taret at Nongmaiching hill.

He also said that an amusement park for children will be developed at Songpi village under Tuiboung block and the government is planning to hand over both the projects to the people at the earliest possible time.

He also said that tender process for construction of Henglep road which will be developed with Rs 100 core had been initiated.

The meeting also discussed about construction of a memorial site for Maichou Taret atop Baruni hills popularly known as Khallong.
