MYAGDI — A flash flood which struck on Saturday night at Beni Bazaar caused damages to more than a hundred houses and retail shops while forcing the residents to stay awake all night.

The flood cascading from a higher ground above the settlement at 11 pm inundated the houses in Campus Chowk and Mangal Ghat. The flood laden with slush and stones broke into the houses.

The flood water has affected settlements in Shikchya Marg, Pipal Chowk, Ganesh Tole, Sangam Chowk, Hulak Chowk and Bank Chowk along with Saibaba temple and lower bazaar areas.

Campus Chowk resident, Govinda Baniya, said that food commodities, vegetables, clothes, gold and jewelleries, hardware and meat shops were impacted by the flash flood.

The Nepal Army, police and the locals are trying to repair the damages and tame the flooding. Machapuchhre Bank’s Security Guard, Kabiram Sunar, said that the residents of the Bazaar stayed awake all night after a ‘sudden and huge flood’ struck.

The details of the losses incurred in the flash flood triggered by two hours of incessant rainfall at night will be collected this morning, according to Police Inspector, Lokendra Singh Guru.

CHITWAN — Twenty-five Ghariyal species of crocodiles from the crocodile breeding centre in Chitwan National Park (CNP) were released into Rapti River on Friday.

The act of releasing crocodiles into the natural habitat was carried out differently this time, with the involvement of local Bote, Majhi and Musahar communities.

The crocodiles were named after the three communities in a symbolic way to help preserve the endangered species.

The initiative was carried out by the National Trust for Nature Conservation, Chitwan with support of Zoological Society of London in Nepal.

This innovative way of marking the crocodiles was carried out with the objective of increasing awareness of the locals in the protection and conservation of wildlife, said protection officer at CNP, Ved Bahadur Khadka.

Ghariyal species of crocodiles are now limited to Chitwan and Bardia only, and so far more than 1,000 Ghariyals have been released into the rivers. But only few have survived.

Latest census indicates there are only 198 of them in the rivers of Nepal. The crocodile breeding centre in CNP has 595 crocodiles at present, with a plan to release around 100 of them into their natural habitat this year.
