The Meteorological Forecasting Division has said various parts of the country were getting rain mixed with dust particles spread from Rajasthan desert of India and the vicinity.

Meteorologist at the Division, Min Kumar Aryal, said the dust particles spread from the Indian desert mixed with the rain due to the Westerly wind causing murky rain in the mid hill and southern belt of Nepal.

Even the Kathmandu Valley witnessed such rain last night which has been continuous till now.

He, however, said it would continue only for two days. More rainfall is needed to clear the dust, he said, adding that it is the first time such rain entered Nepal through Rajasthan.

Meteorologist Aryal warned people not to collect and use such rain for some days. Such rain can contain chemical elements, he added. RSS
