The packed bus was ferrying passengers — who had been celebrating the Hindu festival of Dashain — from Sindhupalchowk to neighboring Katmandu.But the crowded vehicle slipped and fell more than 50 meters at a bend.«Six people were killed instantly and five more passed away on the way to hospital or while being treated,» district official Goma Devi Chemjong said.Chemjong said 108 people were injured but only 39 were kept for treatment, Kazinform refers to Arab News.«We are investigating what caused the accident,» she said.Accidents are common on Nepal’s poorly maintained highways, with the number increasing during the festival season when the roads are far busier and public transport overcrowded.
