Landslide at Malin village in Pune
Rescue workers clear the debris at the site of a landslide in Malin village in Pune, Maharashtra on Thursday. Torrential rains triggered a massive landslide that buried a remote village. Rescuers comprising over 300 personnel of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) continued to look for survivors under the huge mound of debris as signs of life slowly dimmed 48 hours after the village in Ambegaon taluka was flattened in the fury of nature.

"In order to ensure that such an incident does not happen again, people living in dangerous locations need to be shifted elsewhere and rehabilitated. About 300 National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel are engaged in rescue operations. However, it is difficult to take equipment to the accident spot because of narrow roads and mud. People have been crowding the place, hampering rescue operations," Chavan told the cabinet, according to officials.
