A rescue team sent from Lelep has reached Sotlima after a remote Tapethok village in Taplejung district has been cut off from communication as incessant rainfall caused huge landslides, isolating it from other places.

Situation of six families living in the village is still unknown but one Manita Rai is said to be displanced.

The settlement has been cut off from other places after land masses started slipping from two sides since yesterday morning, police said.

Further information regarding the situation of the people trapped there will be known only after the team would build contact, police said.
