A rhino has died after falling into a drain in the Narayangad-Pulchowk-Gondrang road section in Chitwan.

It died after falling into a drain last night that was made for road widening in front of the police station near Tikauli forest in Bharatpur, Chitwan.

It is estimated that the rhino fell into the drain while crossing the highway. Although the Chitwan National Park has been informed about the incident, the condition, age, and sex of the rhino is yet to be disclosed.

Information Officer of the park Ganesh Prasad Tiwari informed that a team was heading towards the incident site.

Locals have complained that the contractor has not filled the drain due to negligence.
