Himachal Pradesh landslide: At least 8 killed; 10 injured as Gurudwara Manikaran Sahib caves in

Eight persons were killed and ten others injured when a building adjoining the historic Manikaran Sahib Gurdwara caved in due to a massive landslide this afternoon.

Kullu Deputy Commissioner Rakesh Kanwar confirmed that eight bodies which were buried under huge boulders have been extricated while search is on for more.

Eyewitnesses claimed that the dead could be more than ten in number as a large number of people had taken shelter in the building, close to the Gurdwara, when the tragedy struck.

The exact number of dead or injured could not be ascertained as some bodies are feared to be buried under the debris.
