Three police personnel died in a jeep accident that occurred at the Ningladi stream of Patan Municipality along the Dasharathchand Highway in the Baitadi district early this morning.

The jeep was carrying the police persons returned to duty stations after handing over the ballot boxes. The police persons died on the spot, according to Chief District Officer Suresh Panthi.

"We learned that three police persons died on the spot and a rescue operation is underway. I'm going to the incident site now," he added.

The jeep fell some 300 meters down the roadway. CDO Panthi added that the accident might have occurred due to a sleepy driver being busy ferrying ballot boxes throughout the night.
