NAWALPUR: The landslides that occurred in different parts of the hilly area in Nawalpur district have halted vehicular movement for five days.

Deputy Superintendent of Police in Nawalpur, Bed Prasad Paudel, informed that transportation was impossible because of landslide occurred at Kusmot-Pokhari section of Daldhl-Pokhari road.

Similarly, the landslips that occurred at Baudikali, Bulingtar and Hupsekot in the district caused a complete halt of vehicular movement.

The landslides are caused by the incessant rainfall that occurred for some days here.

The roadway to reach Dedhgao from Pokhari is completely blocked.

A local from Baudikali-5, Ges Bahadur Shrestha, shared that they were bound to make travel via Muglin-Narayanghadh to reach district headquarters.

A local from Bulingtar, Tol Bahadur Rana, also shared the plight that major roads were not black-topped and upgraded, which posed challenges to a huge number of people.
