RAUTAHAT, July 13: Gaur municipality in Rautahat district has been inundated by flood waters that accumulated after the embankment built in the area bordering India blocked their flow.

After the embankments built in Bagmati and Lal Bakaiya rivers were demolished by a raging flood torrent yesterday, water level in the surrounding areas reached an abnormal point.

Floodwaters that gained higher level after the demolition of the two embankments were blocked by the 25 feet tall dam built in the no-man’s land by  India.

Floods and landslides caused by incessant rainfalls witnessed over the past two days wreaked havoc in different parts of the country.

It is estimated that around 6,000 people have been badly affected by floodwaters that inundated their houses. People are obliged to stay in community buildings to save their life.

The floodwaters that accumulated after Bagmati and Lalbakaiya rivers overflowed their banks have hit different areas in Rautahat.
