K. Balchand

PATNA: At least 50,000 people have been affected by the flash floods caused by the breach in the embankment of river Bagmati in Belsand block of Sitamarhi district early on Saturday.

The floodwaters had inundated about 40 villages of the block when the Maulanagar embankment gave way for want of necessary repairs, taking the sleeping people by surprise.

Thousands had taken shelter on the other embankments.

According to official sources tenders had been invited for repairing the damaged embankment but the work had not been started.
