Shimla, September 6

Restoration work on the National Highway-5, which has been blocked since last 24 hours for vehicular traffic near Jeori in Rampur after a landslide, began on Tuesday morning. The work was suspended late last night as shooting stones were falling at the site.

No casualty was reported as there was neither any vehicle nor any person on the stretch when the landslide occurred.

The slide took place 3 km ahead of Jeori towards Nugalsari (Kinnaur), where 28 persons were killed in another landslide on August 11. Local residents blamed the hydro power projects for frequent landslides in the area.

A large number of vehicles are stranded on both sides of the road as there was no way to divert traffic, while small vehicles were being stopped in Jeori.
