Imphal: At least one person died while several others are missing after a massive landslide obstructed the flow of a river in Manipur’s Noney district on Thursday.

According to reports, the incident took place on Wednesday night when the landslide struck near the Tupul yard railway construction camp located near Makhuam area, about 14 north east of Noney police station.

The Ijai river flowing through Tamenglong and Noney districts has been obstructed by the debris that has created a dam-like storage condition which, if breached, will wreak havoc to the low-lying areas of Noney district.
