A team of the Armed Police Force, Nepal Police, and people’s representatives rescued Gaumati Saud, 35, and Nirmala Bhandari, 40, after they were stranded beyond the flooded Syali stream while grazing buffaloes at Hirapurphant.

The stream was flooded after huge rainfall in Chure area. Ward No 7 member in Shuklaphanta Municipality, Keshab Singh Thagunna, shared that after they got information about the women trapped beyond the stream due to flood with heavy rainfall, collective efforts were made for the rescue.
