By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, May 23 - Three persons have died after a landslide swept away their house at Zonuam in Aizawl, police said today even as heavy downpour triggered fresh mudslides in some parts of Mizoram.

While a 82-year-old woman succumbed to her injuries in the Aizawl Civil Hospital this morning, two others of a family Lalthlengliani (39) and her daughter Emily Lalhmangaihzuali (13) died on the spot during the landslide on Saturday night, the source said.

Meanwhile, heavy downpour triggered fresh mudslides in many places across the State including blocking of the road from Aizawl to the lone Lengpui Airport and Aizawl to south Mizoram�s Lunglei, a State official said.

Clearing of the roads using excavators resulted in opening the Airport approach road while the NH-54 linking Aizawl with Lunglei remained blocked till now, the official added. � PTI
