Several people are feared to have sustained injuries as the rescue mission is ongoing.
A few that have been rescued were rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Security officers have been deployed at the scene to maintain peace and order.
Transportation along Argwings Kodhek road next to the scene has been paralyzed as vehicles have been forced to use other routes to ferry passengers to their destination.
