  Patients Forced To Go Another Places Chartering Helicopter In Absence Of Doctors
    KHOTANG, July 22: Patients of Aiselukharka and Chisapani in Khotang district have been compelled to go to other places for treatment by chartering helicopter at high price due to absence of doctors at Aiselukharka and Chisapani Primary Health Centres since their establishment.

Mostly patients from the two VDCs are forced to go to other places for treatment by chartering helicopter paying Rs 130,000 to Rs 150,000 as both the primary health centres lack doctors. The health centres were established 15 years ago.

  Flood Alert Data Not Reaching Communities
       OM ASTHA RAI  
    Few officials and community persons get real-time flood data

In the night of June 16 last year, when water level started to rise in the Mahakali River, the local villagers were oblivious of the fast-approaching disaster. Over the next 24 hours, the Mahakali flood swept away more than 150 houses, rendering dozens of people homeless.

"Fortunately, a few people living on the river bank had stayed awake throughout the night. They had sensed some dangers as it had been raining incessantly in the region," recalls Lalit Singh Bohara, one of the Mahakali flood victims. "Had they not alerted other people, the flood would have swept away many people, too."

  Networking Business Fraud Arrested
    DOLAKHA, July 21: Police have arrested Bikram Bhujel of the Indian state of West Bengal for his alleged involvement in cheating people of several districts in Nepal in name of “profitable business of foreign currency exchange”.

Stating that their investment would fetch them huge profit, Bhujel and his gang were expanding their “network business” for quite sometime in and outside Dolakha.
According to DSP Suresh Kafle, chief of the district police, Bhujel is the leader of the Indian gang, which has been operating largely in the eastern region of Nepal.
DSP Kafle said that many people have already been fooled by him and many others could still be trapped in his network.
