One dies in Mizoram landslides

Aizawl, Sep 22 : At least one person was killed, several houses damaged and many roads blocked following incessant heavy downpour since yesterday.

A heavy mudslide buried two of three villagers who were on their way back home after collecting crabs.

Official sources said Zarzosanga, who was spared by the mudslide, managed to pull out one of his friends Hruaitluanga from the mounds of mud. Their friend Lawmvela, who hailed from Parbung village in Manipur, remained buried in the mud.

Leaving the seriously injured Hruaitluanga behind, Zarzosanga rushed to their village Sailutar (in Serchhip district) and sought the help of the villagers. After working for the whole night, the villagers retrieved the body today, the sources said.
