October 7 , 2014
At least 29 people were killed and dozens injured when an overloaded bus fell into a 200-meter deep gorge in west Nepal on Monday, October 6.
The bus was carrying over 100 people, much more than its capacity, the police said. A majority of passengers were on their way home to celebrate Dashain, a Hindu festival.
Rain hampered rescue operations.
The vehicle was going from Jogbuda to Doti district’s Dhangadi area when it fell off a hilly road, media reports said.
