TIKAPUR, Oct 19: The Karnali River has breached the embankment near Shahipur in Tikapur Municipality-5. According to local youth, Bhupendra Saund, the river has flooded the village.

More than a dozen villages at Tikapur Municipality Wards 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 have been flooded. The locals have started fleeing away after the river flooded the villages. They are also carrying their children and the elderly to safety.

According to Dirgha Thakulla, chairperson of Ward nine, terror has spread in the villages.  He said work was underway to move the locals to safety. The river has started flowing through Shahipur, Simreni, Satti, Suryapur, Vangaun and Phanta.

Due to the high water level in the river, the risk of the river breaking the embankment has increased in many other places as well. Even near the Satighat Bridge, the river water has started flowing over the embankment.
