Heavy rainfall in South Mumbai since Wednesday night has triggered a landslide at midnight in the Tony Peddar Road of Mumbai. The landslide has also resulted in the footpath along the stretch to crack wide open.

Civic authorities have said that the incident took place late in the night and that there was no one on the footpath at the time.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has inspected the site along with the geologists and structural auditors yesterday afternoon.

The civic body's building proposal department is likely to issue a notice to the builder over the incident. Locals had recounted a similar landslide in the area in the year 2011 on the other side of the same hill.
