A massive landslide early on Wednesday buried nearly three dozen shops in a rural market in Jammu and Kashmir's Doda district, police said.

There was no immediate report of any casualty in the incident, which took place at Bathri market in Bhalessa, 65 km from the district headquarters, around 4.15 am, Bhadarwah Superintendent of Police Raj Singh Gouria told PTI.

The panic-stricken residents said they were woken up by deafening sound.
