Landslide obstructs Narayangadh-Muglin road section again

CHITWAN: The Narayangadh-Muglin road section has been obstructed after landslide cascaded down over the road at Panchkilo area last night.

The road was closed after landslide struck at Panchkilo, at around 10:00 pm lastnight, according to Superintendent of Police (SP) Deepak Thapa at the District Police Office, Chitwan. The authorities could not remove the landslide debris during the night, so they started the work from early morning hours.

Earlier, the road was closed on Friday after multiple landslides occurred at around 2:00 pm. The vehicular movement along the route had resumed at 5:15 pm on Sunday. The vehicles had remained trapped for two days, and the renewed obstruction from a fresh landslide has stranded the passengers heading to their destinations.
