At least nine families were rendered homeless after seven houses got damaged in a landslide in Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir, a senior government official said on Sunday. However, no one was hurt in the incident.

The landslide, triggered by rains, struck Gandtop in the hilly Basantgarh sub-division late on Saturday, damaging seven houses, District Development Commissioner, Udhampur, Piyush Singla, said.
