Six houses at risk; rescue tough

Malekhu (Dhading), July 1: As many as 22 members of six families are reeling under precarious condition due to downpour-triggered landslide in remote Ree VDC-9 Cheprang of northern Dhading.

The helpless locals came across the unsafe condition when the landslide occurred after the heavy rain on Wednesday evening obstructed their outlet to safer areas.

Though the District Disaster Management Committee held an emergency meeting to rescue the landslide-affected locals no effort has been made as of Thursday.

Chief District Officer Biswo Prakash Subedi informed that the committee held the meeting to immediately rescue the affected people living under the tents.

The rescue effort has not been materialized as it is tougher for the rescue team to reach to the temporary shelter of Tamang people due to massive landslide in the surround, said Akash Tamang over phone.

The District Police Office has informed that a police squad was deputed to the landslide-hit area immediately after they knew the incident. But, no further information has been received as the area is far away, police said. RSS
