CHITWAN — The Narayangadh-Muglin road section from Jalbire to Kalilkhola has shutdown following landslides at multiple locations from early this morning.

According to Narayangadh-Muglin Road Project engineer Shiva Khanal, the landslides occurred at 4:30 am blocking the highway.

A total of seven landslides struck within the five km road stretch from Jalbire to Kalikhola. A huge landslide has struck the Jalbire section which lies at a distance of 32 km from Narayangadh, Khanal said.

The road will remain shut for at least two hours due to the time consuming work of removing the debris.

The road is currently being expanded by trimming down the hillsides. The area is witnessing repeated landslides as the slopes have been deformed due to the construction work.

The incoming stream of traffic at both the side of the highway is on hold due to the obstruction.

Man divorces wife just 15 minutes after Islamic marriage in Dubai

Gorkha Post



A man in Dubai divorced his bride just 15 minutes after their Islamic marriage as he felt ‘insulted’ by her father’s bride price demands.

The man agreed to pay his new father-in-law Dh100,000 for their wedding but the older man became impatient to get the cash, DailyMail reported.

According to Gulf News, family members and friends accompanied the couple to a Sharia judge’s office to witness the marriage contract being signed. The groom then gave Dh 50,000 on the spot as agreed, with the rest to come after the party left the court building, according to Gulf News.

But, the bride’s father demanded the remaining cash as soon as the signing was over, even though the groom didn’t have it on him.

He said it would only take five minutes to walk to his car, which was parked outside, and get the rest of the bride price.

Instead of letting him retrieve it, the father insisted him to pay either right then or send a friend or relative to get the money while he stayed inside.

The groom felt insulted and demeaned by the series of demands and called off the marriage immediately, a lawyer handling the case said.

‘He told the bride’s father that he did not want his daughter as his wife and divorced her in less than 15 minutes from signing the marriage contract,’ he said.
