The Mahakali Highway has been blocked due to continuous rains.

The landslide occurred at Dharamghar on the Satbanjha-Gokuleshwor road section of Baitadi under the highway. 

Baitadi Police Inspector Bodhraj Ojha informed that the landslide that fell from the road this morning blocked the highway.

Despite efforts to reopen the blocked highway, it has been affected by the rains. 

Passengers have been stranded after the vehicles were stopped when the highway was completely blocked.

According to Jawan Mohan Bista of the Temporary Traffic Police Post, Satbanj, landslides have occurred on the road section from time to time.

As soon as the landslide is removed, the landslide falls again. 

Roads in the area have been blocked more than 15 times due to landslides since last July, according to the traffic police.
