Hundreds of vehicles have been left stranded on the National Highway connecting Guwahati and Meghalaya capital Shillong after a massive landslide on Sunday. The landslide occurred around 5.45 pm at Umling, around 43 km from Guwahati.

Ri Bhoi DSP (Traffic) Rymphang Pde said, “It will take several hours to clear the debris.”

Half-a-dozen bulldozers have been pressed into service to clear the highway, which is not the only road link between the two capital, but also vital lifeline for Tripura, Mizoram and Barak Valley in southern Assam.
