One died and another went missing in a flood that took place in Malika rural municipality-6, Ratodhunga of Myagdi district on Wednesday morning.

The swollen Myagdi rivulet flowing through Managala rural municipality-5 had taken away the house of Khagendra Roka. Malika-6 ward chairperson Santosh Subedi shared that the flood took away Khagendra’s son Bajin and daughter-in-law Bina when they were asleep inside the house.

Bajin’s lifeless body was found while Bina went missing in the rivulet, ward chair Subedi further informed.

The flood-fed rivulet has caused damages to another house in the rural municipality. It has also posed a serious threat to the Ratodhunga settlement, under-construction sub-station having 32/11 KV capacity and hundred hectares of fertile land.
