Four individuals, comprising a two-month-old infant, her mother, and two other children, perished on Sunday morning after their residence fell as a result of a landslide in Jammu and Kashmir’s Reasi district. The Deputy Commissioner of Reasi, Vishesh Paul Mahajan, reported that the incident occurred in Chassana Village in Mahore Sub Division, which saw significant rainfall in the past 24 hours.

Four family members were trapped and killed by a large landslide that struck their makeshift house in Kunderdhan Chassana after heavy rainfall, according to officials quoted by news agency Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

The official reported that a mother and her three children perished in the avalanche, while two others sustained injuries.

The deceased individuals have been named as Phalla Akhter, aged 30, and her three daughters: Nasima Akter, aged 5, Safeen Kousar, aged 3, and Samreen Kousar, aged two months.

KNO said that two individuals, Kalu, son of Juma, approximately 60 years old, and Bano Begum, wife of Kalu, around 58 years old, sustained injuries.

The rescue parties have collected all the bodies, and the authorities are still at the scene.
