ITANAGAR, June 30 - Three persons were killed after a massive landslide triggered by incessant rainfall swept away the commercial vehicle they were travelling in on the Likabali-Basar road in Arunachal Pradesh this afternoon.

There were eight passengers including the driver of the vehicle when it met with the catastrophe. While two of them died on the spot, the third succumbed to his injuries at the Likabali community health centre, police said.

Rescue operations were halted at nightfall with the authorities worried about more mudslides and shooting boulders from the mountain.

The ill-fated Tata Sumo was proceeding towards Silapathar in Assam from Basar in Lower Siang district. The identity of the deceased passengers was yet to be established, the police sources added.

Surprisingly, the place of occurrence was the same where an ITBP bus, which was carrying 20 personnel, was smashed by a huge rock on Friday afternoon killing four jawans on the spot and injuring nine others, two of them critically.
