About 30,000 villagers were evacuated in Bihar after threat of floods due to a landslide in neighbouring Nepal.

The landslide, triggered by heavy rains in Nepal's Sindhupalchowk district, killed at least 33 people and created a mud dam blocking the Sunkoshi river, which flows into India as the Kosi river.

A flood-affected villager, Kamla Devi, on Wednesday complained that the government did not provide them with any assistance.

People were also affected after water was discharged from overflowing dams in Nepal.

A rescue official of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), Rakesh Kumar, said there was inadequate number of boats in each village.
