2022 Feb 11, 12:16, Rukum East

The Rika section along the Sahid Marg in Rukum district which had remained obstructed due to heavy snowfall since last week has resumed.

According to Deputy Superintendent of Police of the District Police Office, Rukum East, Ganesh Bahadur Shrestha, vehicular movement along the route reopened on Thursday.

The route gets obstructed each year due to the snowfall. However, the Lukum-Patihalna section along the Mid-Hill Highway which was blocked by the snowfall is yet to be restored.

Meantime, the District Health Office, Rukum East, has launched the medical mask distribution campaign in view of the existing risk of the COVID-19 infection. The target groups are unmasked people in public areas. So far, the office has provided 1,000 masks to the public. People here have reportedly started discarding the healthy safety measures against COVID-19.
