Tuesday, June 29, 2021/Tulsipur-
A bus plying from Lanti of Salyan slides down the road on the slope of Shirkhola in Tulsipur sub-metropolitan city-3 of Dang district, injuring 28 people.

The incident took place on Tuesday evening, when the bus carrying some 35 people for Nepalgunj in Banke, all migrant workers heading for Shimla in India met with the accident.

“All the injured are undergoing treatment in Rapti Provincial hospital in Tulsipur and are with no major injuries,” informed Thaman Khadka, deputy chief district officer of Salyan.

“The exact reason is not known, perhaps it could be because of lack of turning for the vehicle after which it skidded off some 50 metres,” Khadka added.

Due to prohibitory orders, the road section is almost empty, but monsoon spoils the roads on the mountains.
