He was rushed to neigbouring Assam for further treatment. “The mishap occurred around 11 pm after villagers had finished their preparation of ‘khabzees’ or snacks for the upcoming Lossar festival.

Occupants of the buildings could not take out anything from their dwelling houses as they had all fallen asleep and there was also no electricity at that time, informed Sangti Anchal Samiti Member Nima Dorjee while appealing to the State government and district administration to provide necessary relief materials.
