Two killed in Kalikot landslip

KALIKOT: Two people died and another was injured after they were buried by landslide at Serighat in Kalikot district. The landslide was triggered by cloudburst on Wednesday.

The deceased are 45-year-old Jagate BK and 47-year-old Daljit BK of Ranchuli VDC-3 while Buche BK of the same VDC has sustained injuries in the incident.

The landslide occurred while they were asleep at a hotel operated by one Bhakta Bahadur Shahi at Serighat. They were on their way home after visiting Kedarnath in India in search of four relatives who went missing in the recent devastating flood and landslips in Uttaranchal state, India.

Buche has lost his right leg to the landslide. Body of one of the victims is still lying under the rubble, said an eyewitness.
