A second major landslide in Himachal Pradesh in just over 15 days left 10 people dead, including a child and five women, and 13 others injured on Wednesday. The massive landslide between Chaura and Nigulsari, along NH-5 in Kinnaur district, occurred at about 12.30 pm. The death toll is likely to increase as around 50 people were feared trapped under the debris and around 30 others are missing. On July 25, a mountain-slide near Batseri village, in Kinnaur, had killed nine people.
