Snowfall in Humla puts SEE candidates in trouble


HUMLA: The snowfall that has led to a dip in temperature is causing a problem for the students appearing in Secondary Education Examination (SEE).

The weather has become cold after the district that lies in the mountainous region received snowfall again. Students sitting for the SEE, especially at two exam centres in the district headquarters, will be hardest-hit, examination superintendent at Mansarovar Secondary School exam centre, Amar Bahadur Shahi, said.

SEE started across the country from March 24 and will conclude on April 4. As many as 953 students are taking SEE from Humla district this year.

It rained throughout the day in Humla on Monday and snowfall has started since the morning today, increasing the cold.

Snow is falling in the upper reaches of the district while the lower parts and valleys are getting rainfall. Namkha Rural Municipality in the northern belt of the district has received heavy snowfall, a district police official said.
