Wire bridge accidents

DHADING: At least six persons have lost their lives and another 150 lost their fingers while crossing the tuins (wire bridge) over the Trishuli river . The victims hailed from Kalleri, Kumpur and Baireni VDCs. The locals lamented that they were compelled to use the same means as there was no other alternative to cross the river. Govinda Khatiwada, a local of Chamdanda VDC said that the government was not paying any heed to their demand for constructing a bridge over the river.
