Sindhuli

Aug 12, 2017-Four members of a single family died after a landslide buried their house at Sindhulimadhi-2, Sindhulu, in the wee hours of Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Durga Kumari Khadga, 37, her daughter Shova, 15, two sons, Anish, 10, and Manish, 8.

Shova’s husband Udaya managed to flee to safety when the landslide struck their house, police said.

He blamed delayed rescue – despite his shouts for help – for the deaths of his family members.

"The landslide struck at 2 am. I was sleeping near the door while my wife and children were sleeping near the wall. I ran immediately after the landslide struck, but they couldn't escape. I shouted for help, but as the downpour was heavy no one heard me, neighbours informed the police at 4 am," Khadka said.

The bodies of the deceased have been kept at the Sindhuli Hospital. RSS
