BANEPA, July 3: The flood-fed Mamdi rivulet flowing through Roshi Rural Municipality-12 has caused disruption of road traffic along the BP Highway. 

Incessant rain since Friday triggered the flood in the rivulet and a mudslide blocked the highway. 

Roshi Rural Municipality Chairperson Dal Bahadur Lama said vehicular movements from Kathmandu to Ramechhap, Sindhuli and eastern Terai and vice-versa have been disrupted due to the pile-up of debris on the road. 

A vehicle stuck in the debris was taken out and efforts are underway to resume the vehicular traffic along the highway, he said. Torrential rain and increasing water level in the rivulet however have troubled the removal of debris. 

Police said that though three vehicles got stuck on the muddy road, the passengers were rescued.
