<p>Even while rescue attempts are being conducted out by members of the Shimla Police and the State Disaster Response Force, several persons are thought to still be buried under the rubble.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Aditya Negi, the deputy commissioner for Shimla, and SP Sanjeev Gandhi arrived quickly to oversee the rescue efforts.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The event, according to the police, happened around 7:15 am despite heavy rains since going to the Shiv temple to worship Lord Shiva at that time is considered lucky.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There have also been reports of landslides in other parts of Shimla, including Fagli, where a home fell beneath the landslide debris, resulting in two fatalities and eight injuries.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sunita and Kamla Thakur have been identified as the dead.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Two people were declared killed in the Fagli incident by the spokesman for the Indira Gandhi Medical College in Shimla, while the eight wounded people are in stable condition.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Physics department and library of Himachal Pradesh University, Summerhill Shimla, were both shut due to a nearby landslide, hence the university closed both.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The University administration had already canceled all the examinations that were set to take place on Monday due to the forecast calling for heavy rain.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh, arrived at the scene to direct the recovery efforts after the landslide.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>According to him, saving lives is given first priority, and the government is totally dedicated to protecting the safety of those who are stranded.</p>
