The road near Nirjuli police station, in Bage Tinali area, was submerged in water following heavy rainfall. Vehicular movement came to a halt as a VKV school bus and the Rajiv Gandhi University bus were the first to get stuck in the murky waters. Over 20 school students were helped by passersby in crossing the submerged areas. Traffic from Banderdewa to Itanagar was also diverted via Doimukh till the water-logging cleared. Water-logging in the area is a regular phenomenon and continues to cause difficulties every time heavy rainfall occurs.
