According to initial reports, the incident took place in the Kot village near Buda Kedar this morning.

So far, three dead bodies have been recovered and efforts are on to rescue eight others feared trapped inside the debris.

A team of State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) and several district administration officials have reached the spot and started the relief and rescue operations there.

In June this year, one person died after being crushed under the debris of a house which collapsed due to a landslide and three others were washed away in Dhar Chula in Pithoragarh district in Uttarakhand.

In 2017, at least six people died and 22 others - including seven Army personnel - were feared killed as two landslides hit Uttarakhand’s border district of Pithoragarh.

The landslides were caused by a cloudburst.

In a similar incident, fourteen people went missing after another landslide hit Malpa on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra route last year.

Four people were killed and several injured after their homes collapsed due to landslides at the Madarma village in Pithoragarh district.
