BIRATNAGAR, July 24: Flood in Bakraha River has swept away some 10 meters blacktopped road of Rangeli-Urlabari Highway. The river eroded the road, that was used an alternative highway for travel in Eastern region, at Dainiya-7, Bheduwa.

According to Area Police Office, Rangeli, transportation has come to a complete halt after the river swept away the road early Sunday morning.  Only cycles and motorcycle are operating with the help of a wooden plank.

Following the incessant rainfall, the water level in the river has increased drastically.

“Setting up an alternative agreement for resuming transportation is not possible until waver level recedes,” said a cop at Area Police Office, Rangeli.

Meanwhile, Eastern Regional Police Office, Biratnagar, said that hundreds of houses in the district are inundated due to floods in different rivers.
