BUTWAL, July 2: The Butwal-Tansen section of the Siddhartha Highway has remained obstructed due to a landslide that occurred at Siddhababa Temple area on the road section at around 11 pm on Sunday, following rains since two days.
The West Region Traffic Police Office, Butwal said the mudslide with stones has not stopped and the work of removing the debris has not been started yet.
