Landslide halts Kapasia-Sreepur road communication

Our Correspondent GAZIPUR, Feb 12: Road communication between Kapasia and Sreepur has been suspended since Monday morning due to landslide at Doshunarayanpur Bazar on the bank of Sitalakshya river. About 10,000 square feet of land including crop fields and a part of the road subsided on Sunday night, said locals adding that residents of the area got panicky by this incident. In February 2003, similar incident happened on the same place, locals said. Later, Local Government Engineering Department filled the soil and repaired the road.
