10 killed in Uttarakhand landslide

Ten daily wagers were killed and five others injured — one of them gravely — in a landslide that hit Dehradun district’s Chakrata in the wee hours of Monday.

The daily wagers were asleep when strong winds and thundershowers sent boulders rolling down from a hill nearby in Teoni-Hanol at 1 am on Sunday, district officer Ravinath Raman said.

Rescuers have pulled out the dead and the wounded.

The daily wagers were working on a project under the Prime Minister Gramin Sadak Yojna.
