ITANAGAR, Aug 3 - Landslides, owing to incessant rain in the last couple of days, have left a trail of destruction in West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, while an Army transit camp located at Sessa was totally damaged, official sources today said.

However, there were no reports of any casualty.

The stretch of Bhalukpong-Charduar-Tawang (BCT) Road has been the worst-affected with reports of landslides in several portions of the road, the sources said.

Bhalukpong Extra Assistant Commissioner (EAC) Tomo Riba said that a massive landslide on August 1 hit the Army transit camp at Sessa and its ration store, barrack, generation room and ammunition store were buried under the debris.

As many as 22 jawans and a Junior Commanding Officer (JCO) had a narrow escape while one of them sustained minor injuries.

However, the Army personnel were shifted to another barrack located below the transit camp area.

The NEEPCO project road connecting Kimi with Pinjoli, Khuffi and Tenga has also been blocked at multiple locations due to landslide and erosion. � PTI
