The landslide led to the collapse of a few houses in the area. However, there are no reports of deaths or injuries yet.
Last month, heavy rains had led to a flood-like situation in parts of northeast causing a number of deaths.
In Manipur, the water level of major rivers flowing in the five districts of the Imphal Valley had receded considerably with only Lilong River flowing a little above the "warning level".
However, the flood control officials later said that the situation had improved a lot and water level of the previously inundated localities had gone down.
