TANAHU, April 26: Around two dozen houses at Byas municipality-1 and 3 have been at risk due to landslides caused by rains on Thursday and Friday. Lack of drainage at the settlements has added to the loss, said Deputy Superintendent of Police Lila Raj Lamichhane.
GORKHA, Dec 2: Locals of Doyal and Payau villages in Gorkha have demanded resettlement in safer zone following high risk of landslides in the hills. Recurring landslides since the devastating earthquake of 2015 have already displaced a dozen families in those villages. And the fear not only persists, it has actually aggravated as the hills look more fragile and landslides have been more frequent.
