A massive landslide occurred at the Chandigarh-Manali national highway 21 near Dwada, nearly 25 kms from Mandi at about 9.30 am on Monday. No casualty has been reported so far.
The site of the landslide was near the Larji hydro power project reservoir where as many 25 students of Hyderabad Engineering College were washed away in the Beas river in June 2014.
Acting swiftly, the public works department (PWD) deployed JCB and bulldozers to clear the debris and said that restoring vehicular traffic may take another 24 hours, only if more landslides did not occur.
