On Tuesday, a landslide in the Malika Rural Municipality in the Magydi area claimed the lives of five persons. The landslide that was caused by nonstop rain, according to Chief District Officer Chiranjivi Rana, happened in Ghanglepani of Ruma in the rural municipality around 6:30 am, burying two homes and a livestock stable.

Gothe BK, a local father, lost his two sons instantly.

Locals also discovered three bodies from the same family among the avalanche debris at approximately 12 o’clock.

BK and his wife Gori BK are currently in need of assistance after suffering injuries.

According to Garbuja, “landslides have blocked the routes out of the hamlet, thus the two injured who were being carried for treatment to another health institution have been brought back to the Ruma-based health centre.”

The District Police Office’s DSP Tilak Bharati said inclement weather has also made helicopter rescue attempts difficult.

“We haven’t been able to despatch a helicopter to transfer the injured for treatment due to terrible weather,” said Bharati. After negotiating through multiple landslides along the road, the police rescue crew has also arrived at the scene of the disaster.
