Kimathanka: Two hydropower workers who were reported to have been swept away by the flooded Hewa River in Sankhuwasabha district have been rescued. They were rescued in a severe condition.

Tikaram Chaudhary, 24, and Deepak Raj Tharu of Bardiya municipality-4 from the Lumbini Province were among those 17 workers for the Super Hewakhola Hydropower Project who had gone missing in the flood last night, said Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) and Chief of District Police Office, Sankhuwasabha, Narendra Godar.
Remaining 15 workers are still missing.

The two have been receiving treatment at the Chainpur Community Hospital since their rescue. The flood triggered by incessant rains swept away seven houses along the river bank. As police said, it has largely damaged the Super Hewa Hydropower Project based in Chainpur-4. It caused significant damages to under-construction motorable bridge connecting Panchkhapan and Chainpur.
A joint security squad from the Area Police Office Chainpur and the Armed Police Force is searching for the missing people.
