School buried in landslide

Hetaunda, September 12 :

Landslide triggered by incessant rainfall since Friday has completely buried the Devitar Lower Secondary School where around 400 Chepang and Tamang children study, according to a schoolteacher Raj Kumar Syangtan.

Guardians are worried about their children’s education after the school constructed last year with an investment of Rs 2 lakh has been buried.

The villagers’ dream of running a secondary school in the Chepang neighbourhood will remain a dream, Syangtan said.

Classes in other schools of rural areas of Makwanpur, which were closed due to rains, resumed today.

Meanwhile, 33-year-old Raju Sapkota, a native of Aptari, Dhading, was killed in a landslide at Benighat village development committee ward number 9, Dhading today, police said.
