Death toll reaches seven

Taksar (Bhojpur), March 14: The number of people killed in a jeep accident at Bakhakuwa, Belaka-7, Udayapur district, has reached seven. The deceased include a minor, three men and three women, said the District Police Office Bhojpur. Fourteen people were traveling in the jeep.

The jeep (Ko 1 Ja 2593) was heading towards Dakshin Ghoretar of Bhojpur from Dharan when it met an accident at around 1.30 pm today. 

The seven injured people have been sent to the BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, Dharan for further treatment, police said. Police’s preliminary guess is that the accident might have occurred on the slope as the jeep was carrying more passengers than its capacity. 

Police Inspector Dal Kumar Rai, the Information Officer at the District Police Office, Bhojpur, said the identity of the deceased except that of Man Bahadur Basnet, the jeep driver, is not yet ascertained.

Police said the jeep fell some 300 meters from the road. (RSS)
