It can be noted here that the hill state of Uttarakhand has received heavy rains in recent days and this has led to several incidents of landslides.
Earlier on Saturday, part of a hotel had collapsed in Joshimath, Uttarakhand. Fortunately, the local administration, along with hotel staff, had evacuated guests in time before the building partially collapsed and slid down the cliff.
It has been reported that the hotel structure has weakened following a landslide in the area a few days ago.
