Arunachal: Chinese items, washed away by flood, found along Siang

Gas cylinder, fuel barrels with Chinese words printed on them recovered by residents of Geku in Upper Siang district

Itanagar: A few days after warnings were issued in Arunachal Pradesh and Assam due to a breach in an artificial lake created due to a landslide in China, several materials were recovered on the banks of Siang river in Arunachal Pradesh.

It is believed that these items were washed away by the Yarlung Tsangpo river in China and were used by local residents there who were evacuated due to the massive landslide.

Yarlung Tsangpo becomes phenomenally wider and is called the Siang downstream from Arunachal Pradesh. After reaching Assam, the river is known as Brahmaputra.

According to reports, locals residing near Geku in Upper Siang district found a gas cylinder and several empty barrels by the banks of the Siang river. The items had Chinese words printed on them.

Earlier this month, the Chinese government evacuated around 6,000 residents from the nearby areas of Yarlung Tsanpo river in Tibet due to the rising water level in an artificial barrier lake created due to a massive landslide on the river.
