Two workers lost their lives, and ten others were injured as heavy rain lashed Kathmandu and other parts of Nepal on Friday and Saturday, officials reported.

 

The tragic incident occurred at the under-construction Bhotekoshi Hydropower Project in Sindhupalchowk district, about 125 km east of Kathmandu.

 

The workers were buried when a tunnel at the Bhotekoshi site collapsed due to the relentless rainfall. Rescuers managed to recover the bodies of the deceased, while ten injured workers were promptly admitted to a local hospital for treatment.

 

In a separate incident, an 18-year-old boy went missing after being swept away by the Rapti River in the Dang district of Western Nepal. The same river stranded two other men on a tree, who were later rescued by security personnel.

 

Additionally, a woman in the Dolakha district, approximately 180 km east of Kathmandu, has been reported missing after being carried away by floodwaters.

 

The incessant rainfall has led to alarming water levels in rivers across the Kathmandu Valley.

 

The Hanumante River in Bhaktapur district has surpassed danger levels, inundating local residential areas and placing over 600 houses at risk.

 

Dinesh Raj Mainali, spokesperson for the Kathmandu Valley Police Office, confirmed that police teams have been deployed along the riverbanks to prevent further incidents.

 

"We have mobilised police teams on the banks of rivers and streams, considering the possible risks of floods and inundations in the nearby settlements," Mainali stated.

 

Police vehicles are on constant watch along the Bagmati, Bishnumati, Manohara, and Hanumante rivers.

 

Most regions in Bagmati, Gandaki, and Lumbini provinces experienced light to moderate rainfall, while heavy downpours were recorded in parts of Bagmati, Koshi, Gandaki, and Karnali provinces, exacerbating the flood risk.
