Kathmandu, August 5

Floodwater entered into various human settlements of Radheradhe, Sallaghari and Sirjana Nagar areas of Bhaktapur district on Sunday morning after incessant rainfall overnight increased the water level in local Hanumante River and other rivulets.

The water has entered into dozens of houses in the area.

The flooded Hanumante River had wreaked havoc in the district on July 12. It had affected traffic movement along the Araniko Highway.

The vehicular movement, however, is smooth today, according to the Chief District Officer Narayan Prasad Bhatta.

He, however, adds that the flood damaged the Hanumante bridge connecting Radheradhe and Sallaghari.

Meanwhile, locals have blamed real estate brokers for haphazardly encroaching riverbeds and banks for the flood.
