Home Minister Balkrishna Khand has directed the bodies concerned to carry out the rescue of the affected ones by the flood and landslide that took place at different places in the Achham district. Search operations should also be continued for the missing ones.

The Home Minister asked the administration to immediately send a helicopter for the rescue of the injured people.

He directed Home Secretary Tek Narayan Pande, Chief of Security and Coordination Division, Phanindra Pokharel, and Chief of Disaster and Conflict Management Division, Pradeep Koirala, to make necessary arrangements for the mobilization of the helicopter.

Similarly, Home Minister Khand telephoned Chief District Officer of Achham, Bishwo Raj Marasini, and District Police Chief, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Narayan Dangi, and enquired about today's incident.

The Home Minister asked them not to leave any stone unturned in rescuing the injured people, shifting the affected to safer places, and ensuring the arrangement of medicines, treatment, and foodstuffs as well as to write to the Home Ministry immediately if the means and resources available in the district were insufficient to cope with disaster.

More than a dozen people have died and some others went missing in the landslides that had taken place at Kamalbazaar Municipality, Dhakari, and Turmakhand rural municipalities in the district, according to Home Minister's secretariat.

CDO Marasini said it has been difficult to carry out rescue as incessant rainfall was continuous.
