In a rerun of 2014 Malin disaster, almost the entire village in Maharashtra‘NS Raigad District buried under a mudslide. The incident happened in Talai village in Raigad The district and authorities have confirmed that 32 people in the incident have died.

The incident happened at 4pm on Thursday evening when heavy rain caused a landslide and villagers living below became trapped in it. About 36 houses have been buried and locals near the village say they estimate 80 to 90 people are living in these houses. The death toll is expected to rise further as at least 40 to 50 bodies may still be trapped under the debris.

Surprisingly, although the incident happened between 4pm on Thursday and 1:30pm, no government officials or rescue teams were present at the village to conduct rescue efforts. Government officials stated that access to the village had been cut off due to several landslides and that roads were washed away or flooded. The BJP criticized the state government for not making any rescue efforts despite hours after the incident.
