Bihar news: A hut near the banks of the Ganga River got washed away due to soil erosion in Naugachhia of Bhagalpur district.

Visuals showed that the hut came under the grip of the flow of the River and got torpedoed within seconds, creating panic among the locals. However, no injuries were reported. Meanwhile, the locals told media that the erosion began to take place a day earlier in a range of around 40-50 metres.

The nearby Flood Relief Camp got sandbags and tree branches kept at the site of erosion in order to combat the same.
