Thane Municipal Corporation's regional disaster management cell (RDMC) chief Santosh Kadam said that the landslide took place in the Indira Nagar locality following which huge stones rolled down a mound in the region.

The official also that 20 to 25 houses were vacated in the area and residents were shifted to a civic school in Gholai Nagar as a precautionary measure.
