DARCHULA: Indian side has admitted that it was at fault in the incident of the death of a Nepali child in Byas Rural Municipality-2 of Darchula on Friday in the ongoing road construction in the Indian side.

Mangalsingh Dhami, Chairman of Vyas Rural Municipality, said that the Indian side accepted the mistake during the discussion with the victim’s family and local people’s representatives on Saturday.

He said that the Indian side was ready to accept the mistake and provide compensation.

Dhami said, “We discussed with the Indian side today. There is no agreement on how much cash will be given to the victim’s family. It has been agreed that the children of the victim’s family will be educated up to class 12 and one of the victim’s family will be given employment.”

The nine-year-old Pawan Mahara was walking on the road on the Nepali side of the border when the blast happened.

He was returning home from Tambakhu.

According to Dhiran Singh Budhathoki, Chairman of Vyas Rural Municipality Ward No 2, said a stone coming from the Indian side of the border hit Mahara.

Budhathoki said the incident took place when India’s Garg & Garg Construction Company — constructing a road in Lakhimpur, Tawaghat-Lipulek road section under Darchula in Pithoragarh — detonated it without giving a warning to the people in the border area.
