Incessant rains triggered a major landslide on the Goa-Karnataka border in the wee hours today, disrupting traffic flow on the crucial Anmod Ghat that links the two states.

Officials said that mud and boulders fell on the road in the ghat section, around six kilometres away from the Goa check post.

"The incident occurred at 2 AM, as heavy rains lashed the Anmod Ghat section along with Goa last night. The road, which serves as a link between Goa and Karnataka, has been disconnected," a district administration official said.

A thick layer (approximately 3 metres) of mud is lying on the road along with huge boulders, the official added.

Collem Police, led by inspector Jivba Dalvi, has rushed to the site to control the traffic.
District Collector N D Agarwal, along with the disaster management team, has also reached the spot to initiate the task of clearing the road.

This route is used by several hundred vehicles everyday.
