    On the other hand, there has been no trace of the four officials, who went missing following a burst at a water tunnel pipeline on October 7th, 2019. As per information, the missing officials were engaged in repair works at the site when the incident took place. The incident triggered massive flood resulting landslide in the nearby hill. Officials said the pipeline that supplies water to the project burst due to the leakage resulting in wash away of at least four NEEPCO officials and properties.

    As per information, the water tunnel that broke apart was repaired in 2018. The hydel project was the maiden project of NEEPCO after it came into existence in 1976.
