Heavy rains, water released by Nepal maroon hundreds in UP


Lucknow: At least two persons were killed and two others washed away in a deluge induced by heavy rains in Maharajganj on Monday even as monsoon torrents and water released by neighbouring Nepal continued to cause havoc in the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh.

The Jharahi river continued to be in spate and an embankment was breached following which flood waters entered some villages.

Rivers were in spate in Gorakhpur and Siddharthanagar districts. More than a dozen people were injured in a house collapse in Maharajganj.
