At least seven people have died and another 55 are feared to have been killed after a massive landslide hit an area of northeastern India’s Manipur state.

Aljazeera on Thursday reports that rescue workers battled heavy rains and inclement weather to pull out 19 survivors from the rubble after the landslide occurred at Tupul railway construction site.

Haulianlal Guite, district magistrate of Noney, where the accident occurred, said; “In all, there were about 81 people. The chances of survival of the remaining 55 people are very thin."

Unprecedented rains lashed India’s northeastern states and neighbouring Bangladesh, this month killing more than 150 people.

Millions have also been displaced by the floods in recent weeks, as some houses have been submerged too.
