Authorities say no further threat from Koshi in Sunsari, Saptari

INARUWA: The government officials in Sunsari and Saptari districts on Monday inspected the Koshi Barrage and spurs.

The authorities of the two districts carried out field inspections to the flood-hit site amid the rumour that the Koshi River in the eastern Nepal is at a risk of bursting.

The teams reached to a conclusion that presently there seemed no immense risk of dam and spurs explosion.

The river would pose no further threat to the life in Sunsari and Saptari if the current water flow remained as it is.

Sunsari Chief District Officer Gopal Prasad Parajuli, Superintendent of Police Bidyananda Majhi, District Treasury Controller Office, Sunsari's chief Badri Ghimire and office bearers of all government bodies, Saptari's Chief District Officer Krishna Bahadur Katuwal and Superintendent of Police Mukesh Kumar had inspected the Koshi dam and spurs, according to CDO Parajuli.

As the Sunsari CDO stated, the Indian side has deputed 300 workers along with 150 generators for further security of the river, and the risk of dam burst seemed less possible.
