New Delhi: At least 13 people were killed and 10 others went missing on Saturday in different parts of Achham district in Nepal. At the same time, 10 people have also been rescued.

Achham Deputy Chief District Officer Dipesh Rijal told news agency ANI that at least 13 people have died from different parts of Achham district in far west Nepal due to the landslide. At the same time, 10 people have also been rescued.

Nepal’s Home Minister Bal Krishna Khand has asked the authorities to deploy helicopters for relief and rescue operations after the landslide incident was reported.

Continuous rainfall in Nepal for the last one week has resulted in floods and landslides at various places.

At least two people were killed and 11 went missing in floods and landslides in the Bangbagad area of Nepal’s Darchula district last week.

Incessant rains have caused floods in the Lasku and Mahakali rivers, which washed away several houses and two bridges.

Nepal has been battling disasters like floods and landslides during the annual monsoon season. As a result many people have lost their lives.
