Three killed, 38 injured in Parasi road accident


PARASAI: Three people were killed in a collision between a bus and tripper at Sunawal, Nawalparasi, on the East-West Highway this morning.

Thirty-eight people on board the bus sustained injuries, five of them seriously, in the mishap. The tripper driver died on the spot while two bus passengers who were critically injured in the incident died while undergoing treatment, police said.

The bus with registration plate Na 3 Kha 5090 was heading towards Kathmandu from Dailekh when it collided head on with the tripper [Na 4 Kha 1141] coming from the opposite direction.

The deceased are the tripper driver, 40-year-old Puran Prasad Pathak of Naubise-3, Dhading, and bus passengers, 30-year-old Ananta Adhikari of Pasang-6, Kalikot district and another unidentified man.

The 38 persons injured in the vehicular collission are undergoing treatment at the Lumbini Zonal Hospital in Butwal.

Meanwhile, the search for people missing or unaccounted for after a bus with Bolbam pilgrims on board plunged into the Indian Gandak Irrigation Canal at Laxmipur, Susta VDC-9 on Sunday, continues today also.

Rescue personnel of the Nepal Police, the Nepalese Army and the Armed Police Force (APF) are continuing the search and rescue operation. Police said the search and rescue is being hampered due to continuous rainfall in the area.

Water flow in the Indian Gandak Canal has been checked to some extent so as to make the search easier. Police suspect that still there might be many more people missing in the canal.

The death toll from this accident has reached 39. It is said there were 136 people on board the bus and many more are still unaccounted for. Five of the dead are Nepalis and the rest Indians, according to police.

The bus carrying pilgrims from Jhulanipur, an Indian town near the Nepal-India border here, was heading towards Bolbamdham Triveni when the accident took place. RSS
