The vehicular movement along the East-West Highway in Nawalparasi East has been completely disrupted as a diversion near 23 Smriti has swept away following torrential rain.

Information Officer of District Police Office Madhusudan Singh said that the highway is fully disrupted since 9:00 last night.

The flood caused due to torrential rain has washed away the diversion developed in course of the Narayanghat-Butwal road widening campaign.

Singh said that they were facing hardships to immediately resume the vehicular movement as rain has not stopped and the diversion was fully damaged.

Similarly, vehicular movement along with the diversions at Gaindakot, Thumsi, and Bhedabari has even become difficult.

Furthermore, a landslip has occurred in the Daunne area of the highway. A team of police personnel has been mobilized to clear the debris in Daunne.

According to police, different areas including Kawasoti, Gaidakot, Devchuli, Madhayabindu, Hupsekot, and others in Nawalpur are inundated following the torrential rain.

Information Officer Singh said that details of the losses caused due to flood, landslide, and inundation have not arrived.
