Massive landslide hits Arunachal Pradesh, a large section of Highway-33 washed away

Itanagar/IBNS: A massive landslide in Arunachal Pradesh has washed away a large section of Highway-33 that connects a district bordering China to the rest of India, media reports said.

The landslide occurred as a result of heavy rainfall over the last few days. It occurred between the towns of Hunli and Anini.

The landslide has hit the movement on the roadway.

Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has taken initiative to restore normalcy in the road connecting Dibang Valley (the district bordering China) and the rest of India.

The Chief Minister posted on X, "Disturbed to learn the inconvenience being caused to commuters due to the extensive damage to the highway between Hunli and Anini.

"Instructions have been issued to restore the connectivity at the earliest as this road connects Dibang Valley to the rest of the country."

Reportedly, works are going on to restore traffic movement and efforts have been made to allow small vehicles to pass through the road by this evening.
