A suspension bridge connecting Nepal and India in Mahakali Muncipality-9 in Darchula district has suffered damages resulting in difficulties in cross-border human mobility of peoples.

The bridge connects Dattu area of Mahakali Municipality to Baluwakot of Uttarakhand in India.

Likewise, the District Administration Office, Darchula, has asked the locals not to travel as a cable of the suspension has snapped.

Issuing a statement on Friday, the District Administration Office urged the people to walk over the bridge only after carrying out technical tests. "A cable of the bridge on the Indian side has broken. We have asked the people to travel only after the maintenance jobs," Assistant Chief District Officer Pradip Singh Dhami said.

Hundreds of people from Nepal and India travel via this point every day.

A large number of Nepalis from Mahakali, Malikarjun, Lekam and Shailya Shikhar visit the Indian markets in Baluwakot every day to buy daily essentials.
