An Indian and two Chinese laborers were killed in central Nepal’s Sindhupalchok area after being washed away by the flood, according to an official. On Thursday, the body of an Indian worker was discovered in the Sunkoshi river in Sindhuli, while two Chinese workers were discovered dead in Sindhupalchok, according to Chief District Officer Arun Pokharel.
The Melamchi Water Supply Project employed the victims. Meanwhile, two Indian and one Chinese worker remain unaccounted for, according to another officer.
The district’s flood and landslide, exacerbated by persistent rain, claimed the lives of 17 individuals.
Nepal was hit by torrential rains this week, resulting in severe flooding and damage to essential infrastructure. Sindhupalchok, 65 kilometers from Kathmandu, was the worst-affected district due to the torrential rainfall, with the Melamchi river flooding.
Nepal Police, the Army, and the Armed Police Force were all involved in rescue and relief efforts.
According to officials, the excessive rainfall caused rivers to overflow, resulting in severe destruction. Since Monday evening, continuous rains have been observed in central Nepal’s Bagmati and Lamjing provinces.
