The road connecting Parori village area with Darhal Tehsil Headquarter was closed on Sunday by the authorities after a major landslide hit the road stretch.

As per reports, due to heavy rainfall in the area during night hours, a portion of the hill slope slid downwards and several metre stretch of the road was damaged. "The landslide occurred in the wee hours and the road has been lying closed ever since. Normal life has been affected in the area, and the people have now been forced to use the Parori-Peeri road, which only elongates the distance,” a local said.

Reportedly, a team of officers of the concerned department also visited the spot and took stock of the situation, after which restoration work was started. "It is expected that within two days, some alternate arrangement will be made to restore traffic on the road," a police official informed.
