A biker’s bike was washed away into Gujarat’s Bhavnagar when he tried to cross the flooded river. The biker’s life was saved by a person, who was standing at the other end. The incident took place when the biker was trying to cross the river with a high current. Incessant rain and waterlogging have disrupted normal life in several parts of Gujarat. There was a flood-like situation in some places after 14 gates of Motisar Dam in Rajkot were opened on Monday (August 24) to release water, following heavy rainfall in the area, officials said. The Triveni Thanga dam in Surendranagar was also overflowing.

Severe waterlogging has been reported in several areas of Bhuj. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted extremely heavy rainfall over southwest Rajasthan and Gujarat. “A low-pressure area lies over south Rajasthan and its neighbouring areas. It is very likely to move westwards across west Rajasthan during the next two days and become less marked thereafter,” the IMD said, adding that the monsoon is “likely to remain active during next two-three days” in Gujarat and Rajasthan.
