Indian Government has confirmed that no fewer than 20 villagers, including 10 children, were killed in landslides after three days of incessant pre-monsoon rains in northeastern of the country

Forests Minister, Parimal Suklabaidya ,who confirmed the disaster on Tuesday, said the landslides took place in the Barak Valley of southern Assam State,

Suklabaidya explained that several homes were destroyed, adding that rescue workers feared they may find more bodies trapped by the landslides and the toll could rise.

Floods in India’s northeast are an annual phenomenon, but the monsoon season there usually falls between July and September.

The hilly terrain in the region makes it prone to landslides after heavy rain.

The state is battling with flooding in several districts, and at least nine people have died, almost 200,000 village homes damaged, and more than 2,600 hectares (around 6,500 acres) of crops destroyed in recent weeks.
