Five women are trapped in Rapti Sonari rural municipality-5 in Lalahi village in Banke district due to flooding in Rapti river.
The women had been to the river side jungle to gather fodder for their cattles, when the flood hit them in the evening.
“Six men have been rescued so far, we are expecting helicopter. But things are difficult, army and armed police are trying their best,” informed Namuna KC, the province parliamentarian from region.
Though it has not rained in Banke today, the incessant rain in the mountains caused the sudden flooding.
