Ahmedabad, Sept 9: Nine persons who had been stranded in flood waters while travelling in a 'chakra' (locally improvised motorcyle with a carrier) at Dudhari village near Tarapur, have been rescued by a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) team.

The nine, all residents of Khada village, had been trapped for several hours yesterday before the CRPF team and local police personnel could reach them.

Meanwhile, the Army has been withdrawn from the two districts as rains have receded.

Medical teams have been despatched to the flood-hit villages of Anand and Kheda districts to tackle any possible outbreak of epidemic, said Kheda collector R R Varsani.

Several villages like Nabhoi, Rinjha, Fatehpura, Khada, Mota Kalodra are still flooded by three to four feet waters.

Traffic on the Tarapur-Bagodara highway and route connecting Bharuch and Anand via the Gambhira overbridge (as a portion of it has been washed away) still remains affected.
