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.
