CHITWAN — Multiple landslides along the bustling Narayangadh-Muglin road section in Chitwan district have obstructed the vehicular movement since Sunday night.

Many vehicles have stuck halfway along different segments of the road because of the obstruction.  The vehicular movement from Chitwan to Kathmandu and Pokhara has come to a grinding halt. Around 7,000 vehicles pass through this section of the highway on a daily basis.

The landslides struck at Seti Dovan locality including two other areas shutting down the highway, said District Police Office, Chitwan.

Landslides at other places including Jalbire, Kerabari, Bhaludhunga and Gaighat had blocked the traffic by then.

The police teams with excavators and loaders are being mobilized to remove the landslide debris with help of dozers and loaders as torrential rainfall continues to aggravate the problem. The possibility of more landslides on the road stretch looms larger than ever.

The road section is currently under construction due to which landslides have become a common scene.

The road had remained shut for at least six hours on Sunday morning due to multiple landslides.
